"She Looks" is a video installation exhibited in Atlanta Contemporary's exhibition "She Is Here" (Aug 22, 2020 - January 31, 2021)

 

This video begins with documentation of the sculptural installation of this piece, which includes a 12' tall booth-like structure that visitors enter to view an 8 min long video that presents a naked male model in the empty Atlanta Contemporary galleries. After 40 seconds of documentation, this video cuts to the actual footage visitors view within the booth. In the installation, this video is played on a 4.5" x 8" screen that is integrated into the architecture.

 

The installation includes a two-way mirror, that functions like a window from the inside and mirror from the outside, highlighting the act of looking as it relates to both the surveillant gaze and conventions that form our self-identity.
