Title: 
  • Me, you, us : observation, analysis, identity and relational art
Degree: 
  • Bachelor's
Abstract: 
  • This essay is a dissection of my artistic endeavours, looking to begin with at the methodology I have been developing over the course of the last three years; the use of observation and analysis within the wider context of relational aesthetics. Further to that I will look at the themes of identity and melancholy which have been prevalent in my work. I do not set out to answer any specific question, rather intend this as a means by which to delve deeper into my own artistic practise by looking closely at the themes and concepts mentioned above which I will then examine in the broader context of contemporary art, looking specifically at Tracey Emin, Sophie Calle and Gabríela Friðríksdóttir as artists I admire and as focal points in order to draw parallels with my own work and practises.
    Keywords: Relational art, Confessionalism
