OBLITERATE THE SUBJECT
An iterative exploration of material seduction, abstraction, and performative gesture.
Obliterate the Subject began, was incubated, and then released against the backdrop of a species-level trauma. Delayed momentum, fits and starts, bursts of energy and interstitial stasis – the work is emblematic of these feelings of pandemic purgatory. What is left out of the frame is as important as what is contained within. Centering material malleability, in varied ways each piece images deep-seated grief, loss, and internal struggles with selfhood.
