The Ladies

The Ladies' continues an on-going enquiry into group portraiture as a mode of questioning the relationship between individual and collective forms of subjectivity. Performativity and participation are core methodologies across both photographic and moving image works and here the interaction with a group of women grew into a form of collaborative exchange. The works enact relationships between highly authored architectures and a group of Cambridge residents whose presence in these spaces raises questions of belonging and agency. The images are loosely based on works from the history of feminist performance as well as gestures and motifs from painting and archive photographs
