100 Days Project

Jules: Faking It

The first notion that underpins my current project is that female bodies are socially, culturally and historically constructed. The second notion is that women’s treatment of their bodies is often an attempt to regulate their bodies as they negotiate these norms.
The project intends to go beyond conventional expectations and representations by creating and exploring new approaches to the mid-life female body, particularly by using the mid-life female body builder as a vehicle.
I intend to make at least one entry into my sketchbook each day which is relevant to this project. This entry could take the form of; a photograph, a quote, a word, a sketch, a magazine article, an artist’s work, a student’s work (I am a teacher), an email, a text, a facebook entry, a documented conversation, a video clip etc.
