Presented by The Naked Brastrap.

A performance installation investigating the nude female body as asexual object.

Eleven women take off their clothes and become objects; can the audience desexualise these exhibits?

· Lampshade – please turn her on

· Flowerpot – please water her

· Living Mannequin – please help her choose an outfit

· Writing surface – please write on her

· Canvas – please paint on her

· Still Life – please draw her

· Musician – please listen to her

· Photographer – please let her take your picture

· Vagabond – please let her harass you

· Nyotaimori – please eat her sushi delights

· Post-it – please post your words wherever on her is appropriate

There is much discourse around dealing with the sexualised female body, in the media, as a tool of the capitalist system, as a way of disempowering women. This work does not aim to cast judgement on the ethical rights and wrongs of sexualising and being sexualised, instead exploring the potential of the viewer’s gaze: giving the viewer permission to look, interact, objectify, even appreciate beauty.

Objects can be bought. Would you buy this lady?
