Polly Borland

Pupa XIX, 2012, 2012

Pupa XIX, 2012 is part of Polly Borland's new series entitled, YOU. YOU is a meditation on love, from the heightened anticipation of possibility to its ultimately crushing disappointment. Photographing mirrors that support and reflect stuffed figures and mannequins bound in taut flesh-tone stockings, Borland masterfully creates abstract compositions that are both visceral and hauntingly beautiful. The evocative cocoon-like forms undergo a transformative process within the series. Desire and yearning bud from a fragile formless state, only to be displaced by rejection, hopelessness and madness as the series progresses.
