Looking Long and Hard
The photographs of dildos and penis-shaped novelty items in Looking Long and Hard are grouped into five categories: 17th Century Still-Life, Advertising/Product photography, High Modernist photography, Trick photography and Structuralist photography. In a romp through art and photo history, these penis substitutes are subjected to a multitude of compromising situations.
This photo series examines the power inherent in representation (who gets to represent and how representation constructs particular subjectivities), parodies the conventions of art history to subvert and demystify this privileged site of representation, and provides me with a space to play out my transgressive desires.
