In this series, Buckius is expressing her fascination with the human form and body. She is interested in the way the human body is covered or exposed by hair and clothing in ways often dependant on gender. In this work Buckius uses a gender neutral article of clothing, a white t-shirt, as a material to experiment with covering and revealing the body in various ways.Physical Description
This work is a series of thirteen photographs of a person in a closet. The figure is dressed in a white t-shirt and makes various poses pulling the t-shirt over their body in different ways. Of the thirteen, one photograph is just the white t-shirt hanging in the closet and one is a photograph of the t-shirt on the floor; in both of these images the figure is absent.Primary Object ClassificationPhotographCollection AreaPhotographyRights
