An Excretion of Disbelief [I Really Need to Whatsapp My Shaman] - 2019

The psychological space between enlightenment and emotional torment is represented within the installation of The Excretion of Disbelief [I Really Need to WhatsApp My Shaman] (2019). This assemblage attempts to physically manifest the experience of struggling to maintain a sense of grounded spirituality in the face of a neo-liberal, dominantly capitalist system.

 

Personal objects, debris and faulty electrical items are composed to insinuate the residue of particular human activity. Two cinderblocks act as dominant forms, both housing and supporting the other elements, referencing the 'Pillars of Belief'.

 

An array of metaphors and symbols are present as the materials are organised purposefully and in correlation to each other, displaying disconnect and eclectic states of being. Raw material is highlighted against consumer detritus in an effort to strip down materiality in an age of plasticity and artificiality.
