CUT TO THE MEASURE OF DESIRE: FOOLISH PASSION 2011

MORE IMAGES

Cut to the Measure of Desire is a series of performance installations that respond

to feminism and spectatorship theories; the panopticon overseer and the resulting

state of perpetual exhibitionism. Reminiscent of the traditions of still-life painting

and the tableau-vivant, I pose within the scene - an imperfect being concealed within

 a 2-dimensional idealised world. The aim to uphold the illusion of perfection is

futile and the codes of desire crumble under the weight of the spectators gaze.

 

 

Foolish Passion was performed in the Spinnerei - a textile factory turned into a

large gallery complex – and draws on this history to create an installation that

alludes to ideas of femininity, domesticity, and labour.
