In the mid-1970s, Finn-Kelcey started staging performances. This photograph was inspired by a snapshot of the artist’s mother. Finn-Kelcey revisited a beach near Dungeness, Kent, where her family had gone when she was a child, and took a series of photographs of herself performing handstands. The image appears to capture an exuberant, impulsive gesture but the work’s subtitle suggests a divergence between the experience of the subject and what is visible to the spectator. The artist continued to explore the inconsistency between internal experience and external observation in the 1970s.
