n-n-nervous, no-no gallery
No-No Gallery, North Melbourne.
N-N-NERVOUS explores the tense relationship between the spectacle and the role of the spectator through handcrafted sculptural work. I have an interest in the anthropomorphic qualities of character design, specifically how characters can be used as imaginary vehicles to transgress social norms and physical boundaries. N-N-NERVOUS draws on the artist’s personal emotional experiences and observation of others to reveal that we are active participants in the construction of our own reality, focusing on the ways in which humour relieves and belies the tragedy and misery of the human condition.
