Nutcrusher looks at sexual objectification and power by questioning how we relate to our bodies, how they are presented and re-presented, and how cultural context affects this. Sung Im Her is interested in how her three identities of woman, performer and migrant intersect, especially in relation to the #metoo and #timesup movements.The work is also informed by experiences of being looked at in unnerving and disempowering ways. With Nutcrusher, Sung Im Her draws our attention to the gaze, to how we look at our body and what effect that may have.
