Becoming Balthus (2011)

Synopsis Becoming Balthus is grounded in an awareness of the problematic representation of the female body as exacerbated in Balthus’ work and beyond. It aims at making links between feminist approaches to the representation of the female body as well as feminist psychoanalytical theory, in particular the writing of Julia Kristeva , Hélène Cixous and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. By re-enacting the erotic displays contained within Balthus’ work I hope to continue the discourse on the problematic of representing the female body in art in general.
