SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

ARTIST GERWYN DAVIES combines traditional costume making, studio staging and digital interventions, the human figure is removed from conventional representation and other selves are assembled. Bodies are adorned and choreographed for the lens, their glistening, textured surfaces entice while their hefty costumes distort and conceal. The double bind of a figure both conspicuous and nowhere to be seen, hiding in plain sight, triggers the work’s investment in queering the act of representation and renegotiating the terms of visibility. This age of endless self-imaging, these works explore the potential for self-presentation that emerge on the stage of the digital image. https://www.gerwyndavies.com/
