After attending the conference Aggression, Transgression and the Avant-garde at University of Edinburgh, a presenter discussed a Dora Maar photomontage called Les Yeux. This particular image of Maar’s, as discussed by the presenter, ‘offered a challenge to the fetishistic objectification of women prevalent in surrealist imagery by tying a representation of the nude female body to an aggressive debasement of the eye.’ The notion that by making the nude body visible, and therefore susceptible to gaze, a female artist could challenge objectification while retaining creative control/power through their art, struck a chord with me. I decided that I would build on this idea visually. Elaboration of this idea brought forth several digital collages. All of the works feature some aspect of a nude female body and an additional layer that subtly incorporates old Dada periodicals or posters. All Dada periodicals and posters were taken from The International Dada Archive at The University of Iowa.
