The New Normal

The New Normal is a documentary project exploring the peak of corona virus Pandemic, the final lockdown and the importance of supermarkets and its front-line staff and customers. To explore the only consistently open place throughout the pandemic. A reflection of the artists first-hand experience into surviving front line work during the peak of the pandemic, as a central service worker amid history as it unravels among us. Exploring the bond of colleagues, customers and community members, the faces of listening ears, a friend to the most vulnerable and isolated members of society, this shop has remained open through all panic buying, lockdowns, and restriction changes, and strived to provide human decency in a time we all needed it so vitally.

 A Place Like Home

‘A Place Like Home’ is a selection of photographs captured to resemble memories of childhood like phantoms. What we remember as children and the way it made us feel. A sense of stability and peace for the soul and the mind. The sunrise is symbolic to a new day, a new beginning, a second chance. This location is not familiar to these memories, but it can relate to others deep in heart. It is the sea, the air and the smells that show the importance. Captivating way to show how nature connects to a fragment of memory. The drawings are to balance the immortality and delicacy of these landscapes. A juxtaposition of two different creations from digital art.

The Blonde Moment

Recontextualising ideas of feminism has been a vital part of the 4th wave of the movement, including reappropriating derogatory words and behaviours used against women. The ‘bimbo’ is a common trope in pop culture and the media and is re-emerging as a method of female empowerment. The Blonde Moment seeks to parody the negative connotations surrounding this concept and reinforce that women are not one-dimensional beings and can be multifaceted by holding intelligence and depth in a variety of interests, and not just superficial ones. ‘Bimbofication’ initially became a meme in popular internet culture to show women as either being intellectuals or sexual beings. However, this meme has become satirised by feminists and subsequently transformed into a genuine agenda to empower women and cause progression in modern intersectional feminism.

The Abject Woman

Gaining inspiration from the 1970’s Performance Art and Feminist Art Movement, this piece challenges the traditional Western male gaze through the concept of the abject; the feeling of revulsion when the boundaries we use to categorise the world are transgressed, (Julia Kristeva, The Powers of Horror, 1980).

Thus when women are anything but the patriarchal ideal they are seen as monstrous or abject. Assertiveness in a woman is masculine. Passion is hysteria.

Here, the work transgresses by showing the inner and outer as one, challenging the boundaries of convention. Normal bodily functions usually hidden are instead put on show and performed as acts of rebellion- shock is used as a method to confront. Fundamental conditions of the feminine are explored through self-representation and consequently cross the boundary of standard expectation.
