Ready or Not
Megan Pates often plays on the notion of memory and ideas of representation, predominantly through surrealism, within her photographic work. Visually, her work is playful and explores the staged image, in which scenes are often reconstructed from both memory or imagination obscured by elements of surrealism, within her projects. Pates' most recent project, 'Ready or Not' is an autobiographical series of images based on the childhood game, 'Hide and Seek.' By creating the sets of rooms from memory, she investigates the contortion of the body and growth, and represents this by hiding in her own images in the same places and the same way, however in her current adult body.
