holliePoPhead :: Di Mainstone

By Di Mainstone, Hollie Miller, Toby Summerskill, Sam Edwards & Adam Stark

HoliPoPhead is a collaboration between artist Di Mainstone and performer Hollie Miller. The concept illustrates a reflective wearable portrait fashioned out of mirror and walnut wood.

Story: A girl appears in a space with a suitcase. She opens it to reveal a collection of intriguing paraphernalia. She pulls each piece out and they release a sound. She removes a mirror which has a negative cut-out of a profile. Placing the mirror over her head, all of the words and ideas in her subconscious are released…

Outrospection :: Daniel Ramos Obregón

A Conceptual Exploration Of The Self

Columbian fashion artist and designer Daniel Ramos Obregón’s ‘Outrospection’ project explores the various meanings of the self through relational artistic practice. Crafted from porcelain casts, gold-plated brass metal frames and leather harnesses, Obregón’s collection is made to be worn and interacted with in a study of self-representation. The artist’s work was inspired by the concept of Outrospection originally propounded by philosopher Roman Krznaric, namely that “in order to know oneself one must live towards the outside, it is be experiencing life that one discovers and shapes oneself.”

Speaking of the intention behind the project, Obregón says about his work, “I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent -in a metaphorical way- the mind being projected inside out of the body as a way of self-expression and representation.”

This project has taken as a starting point the concept of “Outrospection” initially introduced by philosopher Roman Krznaric, where he proposes that in order to know oneself one must live towards the outside, it is be experiencing life that one discovers and shapes oneself. I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent -in a metaphorical way- the mind being projected inside out of the body as a way of self-expresion and representation.

The collection has been hand crafted out of porcelain body casts, gold plated brass metal frames that encompass the body, hand turned Colombian kingwood handles and vegetable-tanned leather harnesses.

Mother Heb / Loleta :: Adeline de Monseignat

“Mother HEB/ Loleta” (vintage fur, handblown glass, pillow filler, motor, 2000kgs of sand. Installed at the Catlin Art Prize) is the mother of all “Hairy Eye Ball” 2012. Nicknamed “Loleta” after the late owner of the vintage fur coat used for the piece, the creapture gains a ghostly feel. Nested in a sand incubator-like room, the large creapture’s abdomen rises and falls slowly, as if breathing, purring while asleep and surrounded by its baby furry eggs, static because holding the potential for life.

Monstrous Feminine by Jessica Ledwich

The notion of the “monstrous feminine”, as coined by feminist theorist Barbara Creed in her book The Monstrous-Feminine : Film, Feminism, Psychoanalysis, explores the importance of gender in the construct of woman’s monstrosity. Can Creed’s notion of the monstrous feminine construct still be used to inform our understanding of women in current culture? Modern cultural phenomena such as the obsession with physical appearance and its relation to the idealized view of women, as well as the notion of IVF and the creation of life outside the body; all challenge the traditional roles women play.

The Monstrous Feminine critically examines the value society places on vanity, consumerism and the pursuit of perfection and eternal youth. Historically women’s sexuality has often been portrayed as something scary, uncomfortable and threatening. There is enormous cultural fear surrounding the idea of ageing and as such there is an entire generation of women whose identities are being shaped by this. This work holds a mirror to the rituals and processes women engage with in response to these paradigms.
