This was first shown at the Brighton Arts Club Private View by Pasha du Valentine in a show called PLACED.
The models were placed in unfamiliar, emotionally barren surroundings and photographed without motive or particular significance and with no audience present.
The idea was to explore how women feel in their surroundings when their motive is unclear, as objects that do not specifically function as interactive bodies.
I have a series of photographs from the show available on my site as signed limited editions.
What I particularly like about this shot is the slight imbalance of its geometry, which echoes the model's understanding of what her purpose is. I also like the yellowing of the floor which is marked by the tainting of time and the lighting. The purpose of the room remains unclear and any judgment by the viewer will affect their attitudes about the image, its personality, its function, its honesty or its lies.
It is one of the artworks I am most proud of.
This is a limited edition photogaphic print of 50.
It will be titled, signed and dated by me at the point of sale.
it will be insured and tracked and require a signature upon receipt.
The image is centred on best archival quality A3 paper.
The Room Downstairs Limited Edition Print by Pasha
Pasha du Valentine is the artist responsible for founding Goddamn Media in the 1990s.
Goddamn Media has embodied the business ethics behind the mission to use the facilities of production to bring Pasha du Valentine's work to any home without pretention.
Pasha was educated at Frensham Heights in Surrey and an all girl's school where she rebelled against becoming an Officer's wife to spend some rebellious and gutter filled years in the punk underbelly of London.
The punk scene created a bed of ideas and styles that remain influential on the work you see here at Goddamn Media and Goddamn Gorgeous TV.
Awarded art, music and film degrees at the University of Brighton, and later a Masters at the University of Edinburgh, Pasha was armed with a knowledge of the arts and their application as well as a feminist foundation which is also evident in the artworks here.
'I owe it to the feminist cause to utilise the means of mass production in the work I produce. My predecessors did not have access to paper let alone printing presses or the internet.'
The artworks here are limited editions and signed by Pasha with an authentification on the reverse.
This makes each print highly collectable and an investment for the future.
