Caroline May’s work explores the performance of masculinity, the social and cultural construction of gender and the divergence of desire through a series of portraits, landscapes and collages.
In her ongoing series, The Hustler, the artist reverses the power dynamic between photographer and subject by directing her female gaze towards the male subject. The exhibition will also include a series of collages, which feature imagery appropriated from fashion editorials in which the artist intervenes by ‘erasing’ the features of the model, therefore stripping them of a fixed gender.
May’s work is a reflection on the duplicitous nature of photography, and how the medium is being used to impose and institutionalze definitions of gender, identity and social behaviour.
Curated by Vassilios Doupas.
