About this Item
‘Since Jo Ractliffe’s métier and media have to do with looking – looking at, looking through, getting others to look differently at what she represents to be looked at – it’s logical that the gaze itself becomes subject to critical enquiry in terms of the symbolic capital of the one who looks, and the one who is looked at.’
