Davidson’s work often uses memory as a starting point in its creation and conception. “The repeated use of contested geographical locations with subjective associations for both the viewer and the artist can trigger and challenge notions of commemoration, familiarity and remembrance through the use of specific sites and locations”.

Her work incorporates the use of “optical devices, both existing and invented, to draw the mind’s eye and pinpoint its gaze towards the interface between meaning and perception. The repeated presence of obstructions and apertures and the boundary between screen and viewer, constitutes an essential component of the work”. ‘Silhouettes and Shadows’, Séamus McCormack is an artist and Assistant Curator: Exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery, London.
