Fragility:Fleshly explores the limitations and impermanence of
the physical body. While the fleshly form of the human body allows the
conscious to function in a physical world, it is a delicate and impermanent
form. The constantly aging body imposes physical limitations on the limitless conscious,
which brings into question wether it is a vehicle that enables, or a prison
Inspired by the work of
predominant female artists such as Ann Hamilton, Eva Hesse, Pat Brassington,
Emiko Kasahara and Julie Rapp, Fragility:Fleshly
reflects upon trends in female art. Employing domestic elements such as
pegs and wool it presents an ascetic that plays on contrasts, balancing between
comfort and distress, intrigue and repulsion. The fragile skin forms each hold
unique qualities but produced on mass, are lost in repetition. This mass
production and reputation is mirrored in the grid structure of the video work.Played on loop the work is constantly
changing, while endlessly trapped in repetition.
