I have been reading about how the female body can be re-represented . The mirror keeps cropping up as a way of distortion, surface, reflection and contemplation. Presence and absence is another aspect that re- cures for me. Lacan writes how a totalised body is inaccessible and that we can only construct ourselves as a body in pieces or a corps morcele. Therefore the outline of the body is constantly shifting,blurring and taking on a new and temporary form.
This constantly changing state is fragile and vulnerable and a quality that I would like to capture within my own work. I have started to enlarge photographs of the skin. Mainly of my hands and mouth and through enlarging I am gaining more ambiguous images to work from.
