MOROCCO SERIES, 2017
Three Children Performing, 2017
This series of photographs was created during an art residency with Culture Vulture, in Morocco, as an attempt to simplify an approach to performance. An interactive approach was important because making art that relies on the attitude and interaction of its audience constantly reveals human behaviour; awkwardness, willingness and experience. It is exposed physically in this series of photographs taken of different groups interacting with fabrics and costumes in different environments.
Participants were given total freedom to perform for her camera. The sheets hide bodies and environments while revealing new ideas each time an experiment is completed. For example, the fabric controls the movement of the body as it is made to respond to water, wind, nature and sound.
This response is the art. This response is what gives her photographs significance.
