WEAR | WE’RE | 2017
Wear | we’re explores a subtle relationship between comfort and discomfort. It seeks to find the disconcerting place where the two meet and the body becomes subtly present, leaving traces, dents, weights and fleshy reminders. This body of work explores the way in which the materiality of the work constitutes it as immersive, perhaps inviting a more curious and ‘embodied’ experience of the different pieces. I will use Monica McTighe’s text The Poetics of Experience as a framework through which to theorise the intersection of the body, process of making and physical artwork. My interest in exploring these themes is the viewer’s experience and the place where the familiar might become slightly repulsive but altogether alluring.
