BLUE YAP ART
UCA Fine Art Year 2
I am currently exploring the abject and the grotesque with reference to absurdist themes inspired by Albert Camus and the writings of Julia Kristeva. Concentrating particularly on the indifference and rejection of conventional societal constructs from Camus’ L’etranger, I will aim to achieve that through sculptural and installation-based pieces that evoke curiosity and a desire for interaction from the viewer, much like how Kristeva writes “But simultaneously, just the same, that impetus, that spasm, that leap is drawn toward an elsewhere as tempting as it is condemned.”. I will also explore seduction and repulsion that come from the abject and I will mainly use the human body as a subject.
