Subject-Abject is an exploration of the space between beautiful and the un-placed, and between ourselves and the objects we see – and then start to relate to. The work is inspired by thing theory (cf Bill Brown), particularly the “magic” when an object stops being a part of one's surroundings and becomes a sort of entity, and explores the visual space where the beautiful can become unknown and lose the innocence of its beauty. It's an opportunity to sit with questions about what this “other” is, and what is beautiful what is strange. Hopefully, we can get a bit closer to reconciling the beauty and the disturbance of ourselves, looking – someday, to the point where the two qualities resist like magnets with the same polarity.
