Footage of a half-naked standing woman is projected and looped onto a white cardboard backdrop; markers are placed at the bottom of the backdrop; the label reads ‘conceal’, inviting audience to interact using supplied stationery.
This project aimed to survey audience’s response in an arranged context prompted by the argument that viewers of an artwork of a female nude, would employ gendered remarks in their self-expression.
At Barge House Gallery London, where this project was exhibited, majority of drawings and notes left on the cardboard were gendered comments.
