Bodyskin

 

Bodyskin investigates the spectator’s gaze’s evaluation of the body, and aims to abstract viewing, promoting a neutrality in form and denying sexual objectification. This manifests as a documentation of self and the female body, and the nuanced textures, and forms found in the intimate details of skin- brought to my attention through the daily ritual of cleansing and bathing. This is reflected in the audio, recordings from the ritual of undressing, brushing and cleansing, in order to become dirty again. The videos are siblings, myself and my brother. They play in a darkened space on old televisions side-by-side, sister and brother, nestled amongst a pile of all of my clothing.
