In my feedback session it was observed that I did not demonstrate how my work was conceptual. I gave a great deal of thought to this yesterday, coming to the conclusion that during the assessment I was too caught up in communicating my research interests to present my concept.
During yesterdays reflection I have been able to really define some of the thinking behind my practice.
My work is very autobiographical. I work directly from life experience and reflect on what it is like to be an artist in this day and age, with social, political and ultimately personal influences. This manifests as a direct relationship between emotions and objects, a connection which i am beginning to explore through research into performative objects and the absence of the performer.
