Covering The Carpet (2014)
The female form is a hotly debated topic; it is constantly under scrutiny. Its naked state is the site of much political debate/contestation, particularly in reference to a woman's choice on the question: to remove or grow body hair? These self-portraits are a performance in contorting, balancing and/or leaping the body into poses, in order to attempt to conceal the pubic area. This work was shown at The Photographers' Gallery in London as part of FreshFaced+WildEyed 2015.
