Vida L Midgelow
This triptych reflects my recurring interests in the dancers body, nakedness and the erotic alongside the discourses of absence and presence. Developed through a heightened awareness of the relationships between (my) body and the camera, and (my) body and screen, the series seeks to bring the viewers attention to the processes of (re)presentation and the intersection of loss and desire. Located ‘inbetween’, the screenbody slips and fragments as it traverses visual and haptic modes of viewing.
