She Is… a lawyer, a doctor, a mother… a Burlesque dancer. In this exhibition Gria Shead explores the female sexual and creative power that everyday women express in the world of Burlesque. From the clubs of LA to Sydney, Shead’s figures cast aside their usual roles to assume an eroticised and empowered persona on the Burlesque stage. In doing so Shead reflects on notions surrounding female identity, both on and off the stage.
