British artist Jemima Stehli has become as identifiable a presence in the art world as she is in her photographs. Stehli restages iconic images from both recent moments of art history and popular culture. Her strategy is to draw attention to relationships of power, where objectification, agency and pleasure co-mingle. Stehli's work proposes that while the female subject is in control of her image, she is at the same time the object of the photographic gaze. By resolutely including herself in her work, Stehli is making visible the idea that the artist's identity is always present within the work of art.
