Curve_01

by Margot Pierce

Chrysta Giffen‘s photographic series Curve explores the curvy human body, excluding the models’ faces and only capturing fragments of the body that have a sense of abstraction.

“As a sex-positive, bisexual, feminist, woman, my break from a traditional female identity is an integral component of my art practice. It is from this perspective that I construct a more contemporary view of sex, gender, and relationships in art. Through photography and installation, my work focuses on the dynamic landscape of sexuality and interpersonal relationships, by means of an exploration of the public versus the private in nontraditional families and partnerships. My work ranges from nude and sexually explicit photographs and self-portraiture to sound, video, and image installations. I consider the nuances of expression and inflection in verbal and nonverbal communication, as well as the effects they have on attitudes, actions, and identities of partners in relationships. Through the public display of private relationships, I advocate discussion about the types of relationships that are valid in contemporary society and, more expansively, about the nature of human sexuality,” the artist’s bio explains.
