Gaze from the shadow - 2019

“One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman”.

——《第二性》西蒙娜·德·波伏娃,1948

First is being a person, and then is becoming a woman. Today, the personal value of women transcends the realm of the family. Gaze from the Shadow entangles the female body with traditional pictorial iconographical conventions and symbols, such as chiaroscuro and the fruit of temptation, to explore the way social roles and positions have defined female identity and morality in the course of centuries.

 

首先是一个人,其次才是一个女人。

当今社会中,女性的个人价值仍旧更多的被约束在家庭和父权社会的限制中。作品运用传统油画的明暗对比法(chiaroscuro)来表现女性身体,脚下的柚子又是一种符号化的性别暗示。通过这些传统与现代视觉符号的交杂运用,作者试图探讨,在几个世纪的求索与觉醒的过程中,女性的社会角色和社会定位是如何被性别和道德来的定义的。
