Old notes about Figure (s) 1

Research questions (from my Research Proposal Summer 2012)

–        Can a reclining female (nude) simply be a ‘form’?

–        What is female beauty?  Slim, sylph-like, graceful?  Or totemic, maternal, energetic?  What are the ideas and images that inform and condition our notions of the female body, of feminine movement?

–        What impact does the staging of an artwork as a performance installation or as a piece of video art have on the legacy of the form of the nude in art?  Am I able to articulate something about how the screen, the canvas or the plinth influences our experience of what is in front of us by juxtaposing live material with filmed material?
