Statement

Andie Macario is a London based artist working with performance, video and installation.

Her work delves into the depths of the scopophiliac audience, exploring the boundaries of the voyeuristic gaze, the ways in which the subject is objectified and how this can affect the spectator.

The subjugation of the audience whilst viewing the videos and live performances are key to the outcome of the work, implicating an active role between the viewer and the viewing. Within the subject of the gaze, placing emphasis on performing the body, performing a character, creating a glamorous and seductive façade of femininity is central to the aesthetics of the work.
