Simon and I

by Whall, Miranda



Miranda Whall’s three works Samuel and I, Simon and I and Ladybirds, all depict a series of self- portraits engaged in autoerotic activity, whilst seemingly unaware of a series of large birds, fish and cats that float, perch or mull around the white background that surrounds them. Whall’s animations defamiliarise our relation to watching these intimate moments by juxtaposing knowingly quaint watercolour renderings of scenes of female masturbation with wildlife.
