Jemima Stehli

Born 1961, lives and works in London
The shifting positions I take in relation to the camera, the production of the image and the way I incorporate other people in the work continues to be important.
In earlier photographs like those based on the Allen Jones sculptures, Table and Chair 1997/1998, and After Helmut Newtons Here They Come 1999, I occupy the position of the naked object in another artists work. In works like Wearing shoes chosen by the curator 1999, Strip 1999/2000 and Photo Performance 2005, I invited critics, writers and artists to make decisions in the making of the image.
More recently I have moved behind the camera with a series of videos and photographs where I record other artists and their work, in some cases participating in dialogue or directing the action, but always remaining behind the camera.
