I am fascinated by the boundary between spectator and subject, the idea of looking at and looking back, mirroring and notions of identity. In the series, Space Untitled, I have used myself as subject, disappearing and reappearing on a threshold, in a doorway, behind or in front of a mirror. The repetition of fragments of a woman’s body present the idea gaps in time, missing parts of a story that exist beyond a direct narrative. It is as much about what you don’t see, as what you do see.
Abandoned and vacant places, such as uninhabited buildings, speak of fragility, impermanence, loss and displacement. I use them to stage scenes which I hope will function as the catalyst for the viewers’ own personal world of fantasies, creating a dream space in which a body’s presence and absence is a metaphor for impermanence.
