Jemima Stehli

Stehli’s work consists of series of performances in which she uses her naked body to challenge notions of desire, narcissism, and sexuality. In ‘Standing Nude’ Stehli stages a full-length nude photograph of herself in the setting of her studio. Holding the remote shutter release in her left hand, she gazes directly into the camera yet employing a pose more reminiscent of the classicism of Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus.
