About

28 February–7 April

Lora Hristova (born 1987, Sliven, Bulgaria). Hristova's recent practice has been concerned with representations of women and their inherent complexities, most notably the visual culture of pornography. For a recent research project, Hristova befriended an adult film director whom she engaged in factual, theoretical and ideological discussions about the pornography industry. This resulted in frank discussions about the realities of pornography and conceptual debates surrounding feminist theory. Other works involve introducing abstraction to pornographic images by cropping, inking, blurring and erasing sexual organs using analogue and digital editing techniques. International Women's Day (8 March) will fall during the run of Hristova's exhibition, and the artist will be producing a special event to mark the occasion. Her research website is at
