Daisy Jordan (UK): Roll over; Play dead!

Daisy

Daisy Jordans arbeider utforsker spenningen mellom det forestilte og det håndgripelige, det menneskelige og dyriske. Gjennom dukketeater, tegning, tekst og skulptur kombinerer hun mytiske historier med et lekende og særegent visuelt uttrykk. Det vil holdes en kort performance på åpningen.

“My work tends to explore the tension between reality and the imaginary, life and death, and the human and the animal. I am also interested in liminal space, and in the temporary, the transient and the ephemeral. Puppets can articulate this beautifully as they embody life and death at once. They express the transient, cyclical nature of life and human experience. Lifeless objects, yet serving as vessels for human life, they are mediators between us (the living), and the land of objects. Existing between states, they almost become mythical beings, like ghosts and vampires and the living dead. They embody our human desire to believe.”

Daisy Jordan (f. 1986) bor og arbeider i Brighton, England, og har utdannelse fra Brightons kunstakademi. Hun har arbeidet som frilans dukkemaker de siste fire årene. For mer informasjon se: http://daisy-jordan.weebly.com/
