Born in 1975 and based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Frances Goodman is today considered one of the country‚Äôs leading artists. Her working practice, which includes installation, photography, sculpture and sound installations, focuses primarily on women and contemporary notions of beauty and desire. Her interests lie in female identity and the anxieties that manifest and are cultivated from the bombardment of the media as well as societal expectations and pressures (both self -imposed and external). Desire and morality are underlying themes and talk to the push-pull of our contemporary society.
