About

Eva Stenram (b.1976) uses found images, such as the negatives of pin-up shoots and thumbed centrefolds taken from old magazines, as her source of inspiration and working material. These are scanned and imported to digital files that Stenram manipulates, reinterpreting each image anew. In this series, the background − the drapes that give the show its title ' takes central stage. Once the backdrop falls in front of the model (negating access to this objectified body), the viewer becomes aware of their voyeuristic desire and erotic impulses. By questioning the paradigms and hierarchical values of studio photography, the artist confers to this imagery altogether a new meaning.
