Signalling back to her history in dance, Davenport’s practice uses performance, writing, moving image and the photographic as strategies to explore the ‘choreography’ of image-making.
‘Davenport has too used the body as object, interrogating limbs and joints as tools in an unyielding desire of autonomy. But she seeks to take control by unpacking the structures that are always subtly present, reclaiming the body as object as a source of subversive power.’
