‘To say that the images are obscene, verging on the pornographic is a conservative way of disqualifying them, of trying to remove, hide or delete the immense humanity that marks them. And it is this immense humanity, and the familiarity of experiences lived through and acknowledged, that confers the political and ethical dimensions of the work. The ambiguous meanings held in these works must be negotiated by each individual viewer. When they are subjected to contemplation, by being simultaneously seductive and provocative, they return the spectator’s gaze, questioning the viewer about his or her own emotions and desires’.
