The Artist

Literature & references:

Chandler included a series of hair works in a 1994 group exhibition at Heide called "The Aberrant Object: Women, Dada and Surrealism".  In a review of the exhibition in Art Monthly, Barbara Creed writes: 
“The most provocative reference to male fetishism is presented by Sadie Chandler in her series of hair works.  Luxuriant hair or soft fur are commonly fetishized objects for men.  They stand for the more threatening pubic hair.  ‘Objet’, 1993 is a glass plate covered with human hair, accompanied by a knife and fork.  The cut hair and the knife clearly suggest castration but when hair is offered on a plate by a woman the suggestion is that she – like Delilah – understands perfectly the anxiety her offering will provoke in the male fetishist.  Like Meret Oppenheim’s fur covered cup, saucer and spoon (‘Objet’, 1936), the work is irreverent, funny and confronting.  It positions woman as man’s sexually ‘knowing’ other.  Are men really scared women will castrate them? How absurd!  How funny!  How interesting!”
