INFORMATION

Pamela Priovic and Lucy Le Masurier bring together their SCA 2016 Honours works to create the dual show Presentation. Together the works speak to representation and understanding of female bodies. Through a fourth wave feminist lens, each artist considers the way women are viewed, particularly in the mediums of photography and film. The medium specificity of each work is important, as the relationship between the audience and the subject are always being toyed with. Separately, the works speak to different areas of feminist thought. In An Office Performance – The Baba Edition, Pirovic portrays the relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter, and questions the intimacies women have within their families. As the women undress each other, the audience is taken through an awkwardly tender journey and reflect on both the nature of our own relationships, as well as the conceptions we have of young and aged bodies. Le Masurier directly concerns her work with the affect onscreen female representation influences our off-screen identities. Through an intersectional and fourth wave feminist framework, the project What Women Watch reflects a diverse group of women watching television and films they feel directly speak to their identity. In this Le Masurier wishes the audience to recognise the bodies they are seeing in these portraits, consider the representation of marginalised groups of women in film and television, and reflect on their own relationship as voyeurs and consumers of mainstream media.
