Here my daughter is assisting me in a magic trick. She plays the part of the vanishing girl who reappears. I am interested in portraying this time of transformation between childhood and adulthood. The ‘Sitter’ alludes to the idea of the female magician as a medium for summoning spirits, whilst the young girl on the chair is sitting on the threshold of puberty waiting for something to happen.
