Nadine Hamam


I’m For Sale

Inher second solo exhibition, I’m For Sale,artist Nadine Hammam examines the gender dynamic between the male and female.She represents the female in a series of alluring yet subtle postures andcompelling gazes, stating the female as an object of desire, there to bepassively framed and erotically enjoyed by the (male) viewer; men see and womenare to be seen. Nadine’s technique of multi-layered canvases, executed inalmost flawless flatness, appearing as solid, almost print-likephotographic silkscreens emphasizes the masculine gaze upon the female: a twodimensional view, void of all other layers.

Nadinecreates a direct exchange with her audience by stating that she, like otherwomen is for sale. She transforms the object of desire into a representation ofdesire leaving the audience with the sole possibility to purchase the object in-and-ofitself and not the female. What she is in fact telling her audience is thatonly one layer may be purchased, that is to say, a representation of the femalein her most alluring state and not her.
