Throp, Mo and Walsh, Maria (2004) Transmogrifications. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Throp, Mo and Walsh, Maria

The exhibition is part of the ongoing research here explored collaboratively with Dr Maria Walsh through curating other artist’s work. The research project sets out to explore the artwork as proposing new possibilities for sexuality and subjectivity in the experience of the encounter with the artwork. The works were selected as innovative and generative of new possibilities for these issues.

The ideas allow a shift away from the traumatic and problematic account described for the subject by traditional accounts (particularly those of Jacques Lacan) both psychoanalytic and philosophical. The research explores new possibilities of the subject by proposing more enabling accounts of the self which are informed by Deleuzian thinking particularly made possible through the writings of Rosi Braidotti and Elizabeth Grosz.

In Transmogrifications we claim that the exhibition allows a possibility for the viewer to occupy a space of transformative possibilities. This process enables a liberation from static, finite ideals of a fixed notion of the self and generates possibilities for new connections to emerge, allowing the viewer to make links with their own imaginary repertoires. These transformative processes of fantasy are evidenced within the actual materiality of the works themselves and move us beyond our specific self-identities. The affects and intensities of these works act as mediators that allow the spectator to engage in an endless process of transmogrification.
