Live installation (dance)

Festival: 2019

Object(ification) invites the viewer to look closely at the female human form, which in this case, although presented as sculpture, is living, breathing and sometimes moving. The work interrogates both art and society’s obsession with and objectification of the female body, as well as comparing the bloom of youth to changes brought about by ageing, and examines the relationship of exterior to interior life. The absence of the third wall creates a new relationship between viewer and subject causing a live interaction between artwork and audience, but questions the act of looking and appraisal.
