BUSYBRICK / IMPOSTOR SYNDROME
Amanda Wolf 'Tragic Romantic'
Within my practice I am interested in the comedic and melodramatic potential of the body, particularly when applied to experiences of pleasure and vulnerability. Through mask play, costumes and soft sculpture, I respond to the abject body as a space which evokes tensions between fantasy and reality, desire and disgust.
Expanding on this ongoing enquiry into physical and emotional vulnerability, this collection of video work and objects explores the pursuit of love as an abject battlefield of leaking, concealed and fragmented forms. Anxieties surrounding intimacy and rejection are played out as a poetic yet grotesque comedy in which the materiality of the body serves as an outward expression of inadequacy, desire and heartbreak.
