Greta Van Oyen | Grot
Tuesday July 19 - Friday July 22

Inspired by research into Gothic Fiction and Horror Film, Grot is part of an ongoing exploration into the conventions and materiality of unease. In this instance, the work is framed by a consideration of the physical relationships between the body and the materiality of domestic environments. Forms inspired by conventions of interior design are paired up against products and materials that normally function to serve the body. In Grot these consumables becomes representations of the bodily themselves, the result is an inquiry into how we interact with our environments and the potential psychological affect of these interactions.
