Rosalie Favell
Living Evidence 1994 (details)
19 Nov 2011 – 19 Feb 2012

Living Evidence is Rosalie Favellís first serial photographic self-portrait; it follows her earlier attempts to reclaim a First Nations identity by photographing aboriginal women. Truthful and brave, Living Evidence exhibits the appealing vulnerability that continues to characterize this artistís photo-based work.

Each panel in the series is an enlargement of a Polaroid snapped in the course of her relationship with a past lover. When the relationship ended Favell altered the “happy” snaps to express her pain artistically. Anticipation of a homophobic reception also motivated Favellís concealment of the identity of her former lover. The taping of the eyes reveals more than it conceals; it effectively Ďoutsí the censorship that attends artistic production by lesbians and other artists who engage in representations of difference. The suite of photographs has recently been donated by the artist.
