2015 Pose and Otiose

Today women’s bodies remain an object of obsession, caught between sexual advertising tropes and superficial feminist critiques. Exploring various poses through camera angles and line quality, Pose and Otiose investigates the intimate relationship between the female artist and model. As an artist and model, Gleeson aims to contribute to a diverse understanding of women’s sensuality within a society marked by the social-obscene. Through this project Gleeson seems to ask ‘As posers, to what extent can we experience our bodies as far less natural, absolute, linear and homogenous than has been represented in the contemporary media-scape?’
