EMBODIED COLOUR: MATERIAL MOVES


Thesis Exhibition for Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design Masters Candidate Dori Vanderheyden

 
DateTuesday, April 9, 2019 - 10:00am to Sunday, April 21, 2019 - 10:00am

My sense of what it means to be a human in the universe at this time, an artist working with materials is most closely aligned with theories from Post-humanism and New Materialism.  Borrowing freely and mostly from scholars Karen Barad, Elizabeth Grosz, Rosi Braidotti, and Nick J. Fox and Pam Alldred because they are influenced by the work of Deleuze and Guattari, and know so much more about what I did not know I knew as an artist, this paper is an expression of how events coalesced to become new art objects with embedded and embodied meanings. Without abandoning the enduring themes of sexuality, the body and colour in my work, I am studying the events of making new work in a new material with a new methodology in a new context with new experiences and new knowledge of my own sexuality, my own body, relationships, human sexuality, the biology and biochemistry of human sexuality, feminist and new materialist theory, colour theory, fluorescent plastics and the academicized art institution.
