 Eija-Liisa Ahtila: Dog Bites

Eija-Liisa Ahtila (Finland, 1959) maakte tussen 1992 en 1997 een serie foto's waarop een naakte vrouw de poses van een hond imiteert. Toen er gesuggereerd werd dat het Ahtila - tegenwoordig vooral bekend om haar video's - zelf was die poseerde voor de fotoserie 'Dog Bites', protesteerde ze en schreef een begeleidende tekst bij het werk, getiteld 'The woman is not me':

"What happened when I or we took the photos? Did I extend my body - postures and attitudes - the history of my character, upon her body? If the point in the photos is posing and my friend is doing it, isn't she doing it all? Was she making the photos and I taking them? So maybe I'll ask you, am I not the woman?"

> Eija-Liisa Ahtila tot 28 juli in het Tate Modern in Londen, met onder meer de serie 'Dog Bites'.
