Abstract

If everything human is pathetic, being a kind of sorrow packaged in humor, then I am fascinated with making artwork about the human condition that breeches pathos and hilarity. I propose to trace my motivation and research that have coalesced to create this thesis exhibition, shame is an exposure, to contemporary discourse regarding abject art. The motivation behind this exhibition seats itself in narratives excorsizing my own neurosis regarding intimacy, exposure, and shame. Through the exploration of photography and sculpture installation, using found objects, abject narratives spring into surreal life in a magic sort of realism. These works bear witness to uncanny, abstracted, spaces highlighting real human pathos, and vulnerability.
