Take A Peek!

Bobby Baker


Video documentation of Bobby Baker's Take A Peek! (1995), third in the Daily Life Series.

'This was an extremely happy working collaboration and is a favourite show of ours. It required an extraordinarily generous gift of time from collaborators, such as the architects who worked so carefully to create an environment for such a complex, surreal set of scenes. I realised early in conception of the idea that anything to do with women’s bodies was so taboo that subtlety and cunning, and a surreal approach, would be necessary to evoke images and provoke complex responses.'
