ARTIST STATEMENT The museological space was used as a stage for conceptual, visual and corporeal collisions in order to interrogate relations between strangeness and intimacy. Using quotidian ‘found’ objects and images, ‘reception practices’ were re-imaged as ‘engagement’ practices through a number of specific strategies. Firstly by inviting potential audience members to ‘donate’ objects, secondly, through the use of everyday forms; thirdly through an easily recognized & historically located, graphic style; and lastly through accessible text like the title of the work. The apparent certainties evoked by the familiarity of these elements, was investigated through processes of re-contexualisation and aestheticization.

ARTIST STATEMENT This project seeks to align Medieval Aesthetics with phenomenology through explorations of ‘acts of courting’ as a creative strategy.

ARTIST STATEMENT Practices of collection and taxonomy and the fora in which ‘truth’ claims are made are explored in this work. Phenomenological correspondences between sound / silence and mass / void are used to question how materials are named and materiality is practiced. This project was both in response to and arose from, previous PhD research.
