This artwork depicts the body as a performative composition. The body has the ability to be broken down into both geometrical and organic elements, which allows for the joints between each body part to be blurred and abstracted from its traditional form. By highlighting various abstract shapes that exist within the body, we allow the body to perform through its limited structure.
Prior to this elective, I was always interested in the idea of collaging and piecing elements together to form a new composition. Collage allowed me to look at the body in fragments that are not conventional. It is fascinating that the body can be broken down into both geometrical and organic elements. I began framing various organic shapes on the body; viewing it as a performative composition. I have also decided to work with paper as I was motivated to push its boundary within a limited composition. The techniques of paper cutting, folding, and layering were also implemented in this work in response to my motivation.
