Cally Trench has made lifesize drawings of bodies lying flat in the floor, both prone and supine.
Cally Trench writes of Philip Prone and Philip Supine:
'Most people are so conditioned to avoid other people's nakedness that they avert their eyes
from the naked body if they are presented with one in the flesh. This is, I think, because
they are afraid to be caught looking, especially by the naked person. Philip's performances
allow people to look at his naked body by using clay to turn himself into an object, a sculpture,
a monster. People feel they have permission to look at him, even an obligation to look at him.
In a parallel way, my lifesize detailed drawings also give permission and invite people
to examine Philip's body.'
