Kate Groobey: Pure Pleasure

About

Pure Pleasure (2018) by British artist Kate Groobey is a celebration of female pleasure. Consisting of video, dressed mannequin and a painting, this installation is as joyful as it is philosophical, informed by the artist’s feminist observations on art history. There are many, mainly male, artistic precedents for Groobey’s nudes in landscapes, a tradition she acknowledges and revels in. The videos feature her dancing as different painted characters against landscape backdrops, accompanied by happy homemade soundtracks, as she embraces the complexity of sexual politics with a life enhancing spirit. Kate Groobey won the Daiwa Foundation Art Prize in 2018, the first woman in the history of the award
