Peter Gynd is pleased to present an artist talk by photographer Daphne Chan.
Chan’s current work, My Body is a Cage explores female identity and body modification. The series examines the ways in which women attempt to shift their body image through both psychological and physical means. Binding and wrapping are used as metaphors for the physical compressing and re-distributing of a woman’s flesh as she moulds her body image into her desired state.
Chan will be presenting a slide show of her work along with prints and books from the series at Pessi88 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
