Meighan Gale


Meighan Gale's
work documents the gestures that make up her day: lifting, bending, soothing, waiting.  Whether learned, repeated, or assumed, these movements define the perimeters of domestic activity.  Gale studies the moves, then choreographs a sequence of postures based on their expressive potential.  Photographed in black and white, each twist and turn of Gale's body becomes a proposition: reshape the standard cant on women's work or be destined to live within its boundaries.
