Entry Title: "The Unhomely Stage"
The Unhomely Stage addresses the relationship between body, place and memory. The location of the work holds high importance, as does the performance, the location used is of high personal value. I used the home of my grandmother as a Surrealist stage to explore femininity, sexuality and loss.

The Unhomely Stage is set at a house that has not been lived in for almost a decade. The house has been left completely furnished and nothing has been removed since when it was lived in. There is a presence of memories colliding with the large uninhibited space. The female body is fragmented and dismembered, fracturing the power of the photographic gaze. The performances are quiet, yet powerful evocations of a hidden unknown.
