Residency Eisa Jocson

Eisa Jocson, an artist from the Philippines, explored the potential of pole dancing in questioning power relationships within the sexual, private and public realm. During her AEGIS residency at FoAM, she probed themes such as sexuality and space, sexualization of culture, sociology of the body, normalisation and surveillance. Study, research and exploration on the subject of pole dancing has been limited. It is a global phenomenon indicative of wider shifts occurring in society, and Eisa believes that the pole dance has far-reaching potential as a medium for artistic production and discourse.
