Webster Christine

Coming from a background of photographers, Webster developed an exhibiting career as a practicing artist. Fascination with role-play and the different personae people reveal, Webster began a study of desire, vulnerability, intimacy and power; all the work stemming from a need to question the status quo. By exposing or subverting the norms Webster explores work that is anti-hierarchical. Recent work involves a film work, ‘Blindfield’ 2008 which explores the role of the individual in relation to structures of power, in this case, the asylum. Webster sees her role as that of catalyst. She draws from her own vulnerabilities and seeks subjects who are willing to be directed, so that together they can portray aspects of human psychology that will find empathy or offer intimacy to the viewer.
