In the shadow of her gaze n.022013
This installation collage explores and subverts traditional structures of power and control. On one hand it conforms to the traditional stereotype of woman as passive, idealised; offered up for possession to a controlling viewer consumer. On the other hand it blocks such a stereotypical perspective. Nothing complete is offered for possession; each collage offers a fractured composite that is further broken up and disrupted by the placement of metal rods and the interruptions of the other montages themselves. Power shifts from where one would expect it to reside (in the viewer) back towards the seemingly passive and powerless collages.
