Zine, printed in 2016
Fundamentally interested in gender, spectatorship, objectification and the perforative aspects of human behaviour, Bindi Steel’s practice involves the recontextualisation and subversion of the visual language of her source material. Concerned mainly with media sources of the 1970’s and 1980’s, the works address the kitsch and low-brow nature imbued into such ephemera to raise ideas about alternate perspectives to the heterosexual-male gaze. Paintings, sculpture and videos works come together in Bindi’s practice to reverse the conventional subject/object dichotomy by casting a powerful gaze upon male nude subjects.
