Catalogue image for Vibrate, 2014. The installation considers in a curatorial sense the context of viewing through cinematic separation, whilst investigating early pre-conceptions of the ‘male gaze’ and the urge for vanity. The piece simultaneously explores ideas of sex and beauty as provoked by the media through a filmed performance of a seemingly daily ritual. Altogether the installation suggests to the audience an authentic insight into the raw reality of the hidden aspect of sexual apparatuses and questions their acceptance in society.
