The Monstrous I: Abjection as Disobedience in Contemporary Self-Portraiture
Gundesen, Riisa Bryn 1988-
An examination of the abject danger associated with the female nude in the history of European painting. Once identified, is it possible to use this phenomena to counteract objectification in contemporary visual culture? An exploration of this theme is undertaken through a series of Self-Portraits and Natures Mortes.
