Gestus

Although these two Queensland based artists, Yavuz Erkan and Alix Perry, are engaging with different ideas I am interested in their use of self-portraiture and the interaction with objects. These absurd and yet playful gestures reveal a tension between the self and society highlighting the construction of gender.

riitta päiväläinen

Whimsical, sculptural, emotive and eerie are some words to describe the work of Finnish photographer Riitta Päiväläinen who is fascinated by the presence of unwritten history, particularly that which shrouds second hand clothes.  Päiväläinen combines my love for cold landscapes and installations made of cloth.
