My last project focused on ideas of the body as a conduit for female hysteria – the vehicle on which a sense of deep frustration was taken out upon. The subject removed her skin in the narrative, which was portrayed visually through the use of meat. I am interested in the use of abjection and the body, in order to at once receive a reception of disgust and interest, which intertwine to create a twisted fascination with pain, flesh and the body.
In my next project, I would like to explore the body further, and explore the ways that bodies are exploited by both themselves and others. In this project, I would like to have a greater focus on the mind, and how different personalities and situations influence the physical form.
I would like to explore the way that different artists portray the body, how they interact with it and how they make a statement towards the importance of the body in relation to the mind.
