I am a lens-based artist fascinated by the role which performance plays within photography. Throughout the last two years I have been producing images which should be viewed in sequence and which over time have evolved into a series of carefully staged performance pieces. These improvisations are purely for the camera and are to be viewed as still images recording an event which is already a memory.
This work is directly related to issues of femininity, time, space and the gaze. In these images not only is it an inner gaze, which I inflict upon myself, but at the same time it is also a female gaze as I am a female photographer, I am both the “surveyor and the surveyed ”. I turn the gaze back upon myself and explore the nature of woman as object and themes of identity and gender. I have tried to use a delicate touch to ensure that the relationship to the feminine is positive and not just provocative and have intentionally staged these images to evoke the theatre. As I am unidentifiable my body is a symbolic “everywoman”.
