'Re-covered'

“FOR YOU”1994 Installation (Oil paintings 24" x 36", fabric, concrete)

'Re-covered' created from 1992-1997 was centred around the relationship between the self and surface, interrogating the idea of photographic 'objectivity' and the idea of the 'gaze'. Experiements were created that allowed the camera to 'take' without direction or control. The results were segmented and partitioned areas of the body, some of which were reprocessed in collage, others through painting. In 'For You' 1994, three photo realistic paintings hang in an underground chamber, accessible only through the dark.
In 'For You 2' a sheet of glass hanging in  an underground shelter displays fragile images projected onto dust.

  • The body, for Foucault, Deleuze, Iraguray, and others is an historical, political object, through (and over) which the relations of power and resistance are played. The female body has been claimed, staked out for centuries; from the first chapter of the bible it is defined as that which is corrupted and corrupting.
