Amanda Houchen

Source imagery for Houchen's work includes the more obscure and choreographed settings of burlesque, cabaret or circus, where people adopt theatrical roles and masquerade. Combining imagery from specific eras creates new, unrecognisable images. These characters are timeless and ephemeral, existing in the moment in which they’re recognised and belonging to constructions of their own devising. The focus is not only on the cult of the female star, but on the temporary nature of this state of performance and stardom.
