Tendencies of need and dislocation

 

Tendencies of need and dislocation was a performative project incorporating sculptural components, which was eventually realised as an interactive installation with both sculptural pieces and

projected video of the final performance. 

Installation for the 'RMIT Fine Art Graduate Exhibition', 2015.

 

Video projection of Tendencies of Need and Dislocation, 9’ 08” duration, looped; Eviscerated and All churned up.

 

Didactic rationale:

 

Patterns of psychological experience and the effects of our unconscious constraints and motivations form the foundation

of this project, materialising in a sculptural manifestation of internal psychic realities, understood through bodily and

material associations.

 

In this work I have projected my mental and emotional needs outward onto this materialisation through physical exploration

with the sculpture. The value is situated in my relationship and interaction with the form rather than as an the art object. This

work exists as a metaphor of psychological restraints, and one’s constricted insides. Each of us desire an understanding of

our unconscious and relief from psychological struggles.

Catalogue statement:

relationship and interaction with the artwork rather than on the art object, which exists as a metaphor of my psychological restraints, my

constricted insides. I desire an understanding of my own unconscious and comfort or relief from my psychological struggles.

Gut was an explorative performance, a developmental stage in the lead up to the final performance of Tendencies of need and dislocation. It was performed with the second of two

sculptural prototypes made prior to Eviscerate.
