Voir (2018) aims to contrast the public gaze to the female body through photographic medium and installation. With background research into representations of women in cinema, media and pornography, it aims to create a tension between censorship and exposure. The act of looking, as addressed in the title, suggests the voyeuristic nature of many mass-media images. It aims to provoke questions about the nature of looking also referring to scopophilia (pleasure in seeing nakedness). The artist sees the desire of “to-be-looked-at-ness” (Mulvey) as the fundamental reason for distorted body images and refers back to the Artist’s research into gaze theory. The viewer may question their own distorted perception of mass-media images and of themselves. Experimenting with perspex, Asselborn further explores her interest in the actual manipulated image itself and expresses this also through elements of motion and blurring to create a pushing and pulling of focus. The perspex is installed 10 cm from the wall and recreates the view onto a film- or phone screen. The viewer may look behind the perspex seeking a close-up of the image. Some may see the image through the perspex or focus on the surface of the perspex itself. These three options are different ways of perceiving the image. The perspex box installed on a small brown table placed in the middle asks for a similar way of looking at it. The box is filled with blue-coloured water to create a layer before the image (inverted series) (2018), that is placed underneath the cube.
