Lot Report


The home and the body can provide a sense of security, freedom, and self-expression, while also being restrictive sites of subordination and anxiety. "The Living Room" explores this shared tension within, as well as the distinction between domestic space and the self. By transforming the body into domestic space, this piece blurs the boundary between body and home, bringing these tensions to light.

About the Artist:
Allison Morris is a fine art photographer based in Toronto. Through self-portraiture, Allison's practice explores the themes of beauty, identity and the construction of femininity to challenge both our perceptions and the boundaries of the body. Her work has been exhibited internationally and has appeared in multiple publications including ArtPremium Magazine and The Huffington Post.
