Curator’s Choice: Ciarán Power

Wednesday 1 February – Tuesday 28 February 2017
Ciaran Power: My Millie, 91 x 61 cm | Curator’s Choice: Ciarán Power | Wednesday 1 February – Tuesday 28 February 2017 | Hunt Museum

Ciarán Power is focused on addressing sexuality as a dominant social performance. Joan Riviere’s ‘Womanliness as Masquerade’ states that womanliness is a cover-up to conform with social constructions of femininity; a masquerade whereby the woman as a category does not exist. This would suggest that sexuality is a central part of social performance. The performance reveals a structure; it is a response to a male fantasy. The artworks open a discourse and provide a reference point for speculation surrounding issues that are fundamental to the nature of contemporary social life.

The subject of the artwork is rendered as passive object. This results in a disturbing and complex body of work of power, pleasure, agency and fantasy in the broad world of contemporary popular culture.
