Description

Drawing on imagery from advertising, the internet, magazines and her own drawings and photographs, Clunie Reid’s photo-collages appropriate and violently represent the banality of every day images. Drawing on the sexual content and rhetoric of advertising, and often reproduced on a mirrored surface, with hand scrawled jokes and texts overlaying them, the images play on the relationship between surface and penetration, where distorted images overlay one another, shattering the reflection of the mirrored surface.

In this artists’ book these illusionistic, sexual games are replayed across the blacked or mirrored surface of the book. Using images, jokes, text, and drawings, the book becomes a hall of mirrors in which one meaning rapidly collapses in on itself only to reproduce a new multifaceted one.
