  • Titill er á ensku Traces of love and revulsion
  • Meistara
  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    Through this thesis I explore the tension between two kinds of objects, or experiences; positive, joy-evoking ones, and negative ones such as repulsive or disgusting items.
    From a curiosity about how visual and tactile effects can be the exact same within two objects, but evoke the opposing physical reactions of repulsion or attraction, I explore the ambiguous, uncanny experience that occur when these conflicting experiences merge together.
    In my practical work I investigate the concept of skin and animation in the process of creating a sculpture, through materials like latex, fabrics and metal. I look at how working with materials and shapes that appeal strongly to sensation and that resemble body can be a vocabulary to read emotion into a work.
    I investigate different ways that artwork can express a dark topic and the role of empathy within artwork resembling incomplete bodies, and draw parallels between our experience of the merging of positive- and negatively charged objects, and an emotional experience; how the human body can fit both drives of violence and love simultaneously.
