Lydia McCaig (1997), graduated Lancaster University 2019.

 

Lydia McCaig’s practice is multidisciplinary, exploring the interplay between female sexuality/feminism, seduction/male gaze and erotica/objectification. She navigates these topics, primarily through performative photographic works, audio, video, installation and narrative texts. 

McCaig locates her own body as a site from which to make performative gestures that propose the personal as political, the unsaid as universal and desire in all its forms as an imagined space we occasionally share.
