Film Night from the 5-9 Exhibition

This was a really good night at the Power Hub, Maidstone, full of interesting site specific work and film views.
I was lucky enough to be able to show one of my pieces alongside other artists/tutors and students.

Schopenhauer


Thinking about how we respond to surroundings and items around us, Can we ever escape the code and conventions embedded within them?

Erwin Wurm and Jan Family






Manifesto's for ways in which we can adapt in alternative ways to our surroundings we inhabit. Idea's of appropriation...

This appropriation towards objects also comes across in Wurm's performative sculptures, and testing situations of human relation. Something I have attempted to explore previously, but have only scratched the surface....

Rediscovering Relational Aesthetics


I have recently come back to Bourriaud's ideals of a more relational state of how art can be produced, in which i find appeals to me greatly. However, this time i may be more inclined to accept other forms of spectatorship just as influential and effective, especially towards my practice.

"These objects were given to me as gifts by my ex partner. By asking people to talk about them in a way they see fit, I will attempt to deconstruct the meanings they originally held for me. Thus, eventually freeing the objects from those connotations which I would rather now forget."
