Georgia is concerned with representations of the female body and form within medical discourse. She recontextualises endoscopic imagery to explore the dynamic of power exercised by the medical institution. In Interiors, amorphous sculptural forms and drawings are offered for our own visual consumption, in order to highlight the ways in which the female body exists as a static object under the scientific gaze.
"This is a body of work rooted in the human response to medical visualisation. There is a sense of strangeness that occurs through experiencing a visual representation of the body that cannot be assimilated into body image. It is a feeling that stands for more than just intuitive response, but for the way that our bodies are rendered external objects by the medical institution. They are to be kept at a distance, are seemingly out of our control and shrouded in mystery. This "strangeness" has been the instigator of an exploration of the contradictory representations of female form surrounding us, From the medical institute to the sanitised suggestions of female form in the built environment. Interiors links the decorative objects in the surgery waiting room to the reality beyond. By playfully exposing the contradictions in how we respond to representations of the female body, it is ultimately conveyed as unseen."
