‘THE GOOD HURT’
14th May 2016 / 6pm – 11pm / FREE
15th May- 11th June 2016
This exhibition discusses a relationship between photographer and sitter, artist and model and husband and wife through my own experience of art making. I address the balance of power between two individuals invested in each other (myself and my husband) emotionally and contractually bound, and our individual relationships with the camera. I collaborated with my husband I aimed to address the struggle for control in our relationship through ‘tests of love’ agreed through trust, negotiation and compromise. The Good Hurt explores power dynamics between husband and wife whilst testing the boundaries of photographer and sitter. I am interested in who plays the role of dominant or submissive and how these change or blend depending on circumstances, or situations.
