Photomonitor reviews Maisie Cousins’ solo show ‘grass, peonie, bum’


28 Jun - 2017

SHARE


While we may appreciate Cousins’ honesty, it is important to keep in mind what draws us to her images in the first place. Take, for instance, her use of colour. Pinks and purples, colours associated with femininity, with the qualities of being endearing or attractive, dominate; they become aggressive. Flesh, which ranges from yellow to grey, becomes unappealing. Still, there is something undeniably sensuous about Cousins’ palette. This is highlighted nicely in the smaller, adjacent gallery space, which is transformed through the use of gold, reflective foil on the floor and a deep shade of coral on the walls. Entering the space, we feel as though we are being swallowed by one of Cousins’ oily blossoms.

Hrafnhildur Arnardottir aka Shoplifter interview in iD talking about her work and all things hairy


28 Jun - 2017

SHARE


Synthetic hair is sometimes seen as trashy, associated with Halloween wigs and bad toupées, but Shoplifter, who has her studio in Brooklyn, sees things differently. She was first intrigued by hair as a material when she found her Icelandic grandmother’s cut-off hair braid in a vanity table drawer. “I was mesmerised by the sheer curiosity of being able to hold onto any part of your body; I felt like it was a relic that represented her youth and it touched me deeply for its beauty and strangeness,” she remembers.

Tonight is the London presentation of Juliana Cerqueira Leite’s first artist book A Potential Space at Tenderbooks, 6-8pm, all welcome!


1 Jun - 2017

A Potential Space is an artist book by Brazilian sculptor Juliana Cerqueira Leite that proposes a re-reading of the cultural and theoretical frameworks that surround representations of the female sex. The book contains no printed text. Instead 83 laser-cut pages accrete into a small negative form. Each page reveals an individually cut outline derived from a 3D scanned body cast. These outlines combine to represent the inner topography of a vagina, originally cast inside of a body, now contained as negative space within the book.

Maisie Cousins and Mia Pfeifer are interviewed by ID. “Maisie Cousins new show is a multi-sensory meditation on female sexuality”


24 May - 2017

SHARE


Maisie Cousins and Mia Pfeifer first met over an Irish coffee. Mia had wanted Maisie to exhibit in a group show she was curating, but ended up agreeing to co-curate Maisie’s first ever solo show instead. Launching next week, Grass, peony, bum is the culmination of years of work that centres around themes of sexuality, femininity, power, and nature. Hedonistic and performative, the British photographer uses photography to actively challenge normative standards of beauty and societal definitions of what it means to be a woman. Whether it’s a close up of glistening flesh or the textured imprint of grass on skin, her photographs move seamlessly between humour and eroticism. As well as showcasing her work, Maisie has teamed up with esteemed perfumer Azzi Glasser, to create an immersive installation, providing viewers with a multi-sensory experience. Ahead of the launch, we caught up with Mia and Maisie to talk flesh prisons and femininity.
