Investigating the manipulation of the act of viewing, Peepshow will deny the public access to Project Space 11 with the intention of arousing curiosity of what lies within it. Presenting a small peephole well above eye-level, viewers will have to climb a small set of steps outside the spaceʼs shutter to view the work.
This act of looking will position the viewer raised on a platform, highly visible to the other market users. However, with only one person being able to view the work at a time, this highly public scenario will also be a potentially private and intimate one.
The project could make reference to the notion of voyeurism (Hitchcockian motifs, ʻrubberneckingʼ, Soho peepshows etc), or more formally address the gender politics that are connoted by the peephole-viewing construct (for example Bergerʼs notion of ʻthe gazeʼ).
