Kim Waldron: working assumption
February 7, 2004 - May 9, 2004
Kim Waldron’s quest for a defined career path led her to Paris, France where she produced a series of photographs calleed working assumption. More than a game of dress-up, Waldron endeavoured to take on the role of a butcher, physician, teacher, and mechanicm while keeping her own feelings and personality in check. Using the natural light of authentic work places, and wearing well-worn uniforms of the trade, the artist herself looks quite indifferent to being someone else for an hour. The resulting photographs examine shifting attitudes towards work, gender, and class within contemporary society.
