Kitchens and high heels are both signifiers of women who serve, yet these photographs complicate both of those paradigms. Here the kitchens are immense and impersonal, more laboratory than domestic. The women in them are formal objects, rather than serving subjects, they speak nothing of the amenable and essentialist language that home makers in traditional food making scenes embody. These headless women in contrived positions slash the plane of the image, they serve as shapes rather than bodies, as geometric design rather than narrative characters. There is a fresh power in the disassociation from known subject, into the realm of line, color, light and fashion.
