Untitled Body Abstraction 01

Single channel video loop, 5’17’’

Untitled Body Abstraction 01 is an intimate self-portrait utilising noir-ish shadows to fragment, splice and manipulate the flesh into abstract patterns and movements. The film investigates the dichotomy between the self and other of female physicality, in a world where appearance is key and surveillance and policing of the body is almost constant.

Shown as part of POW Thanet and Art: Tech: Networks, this is the first in an ongoing series of films mapping the body as a site of memory and in terms of a landscape. The wider project is gathering contributors to create a collective depiction using individual nude portraits
