Gretta Sarfaty's interactive performance will be situated within the context of the artist's ongoing concept, which documents the searching and evolving of a potential muse. ‘Through a Glass Darkly' will expose to the audience Gretta's latest virtual reality. The whole process lead to a sequence of digital photographs being created that subtlety hint at the voyeuristic performance that the audience are about to witness during the private view, and every Saturday thereafter. click here to see film of the live performance - WARNING EXPLICIT CONTENT

"With her performance ‘Through a Glass Darkly' the array of potential emotional and intellectual responses are endless as we peer through the murky mirroring glass at the naked ‘office worker'. And most of all it is ourselves watching ourselves through that most vulnerable states of the ‘other' in this strange place of the virtually real.

Perhaps the premise sounds ludicrous but maybe not as ludicrous as some of the situations we find ourselves in, when traversing the virtual world. And like all powerful performance art, this premise that is Gretta Sarfaty's newest work offers up the idea that we are all voyeurs ultimately trying to find something of ourselves through the act of gazing. "
