GEORGINA CUE | PICTURES | PRESENTED PART OF PHOTO 2020
Presented part of PHOTO 2020 International Festival of Photography
Exhibition Dates | Friday 5 February 2021 - Saturday 6 March 2021
Referencing Dada film, constructivist theatre and graffiti culture, Georgina uses DIY materials such as cardboard and spray paint to create large-scale stages in a suburban garage. These theatrical stages then become the background for photographs and videos in which, Georgina features as a film siren and femme fatale. Drawing from western ideals of the body such in modernist painting, Cubist masks and classical Greek sculpture, Georgina’s work explores female identity through self-portraiture and performance.
