ARTIST AT SLAP//2
JOANA CIFRE CERDA
I am a Spanish artist based in Lincolnshire since 1994. My practice is multidisciplinary with a strong performative bias. Through “making” or “doing” I seek to gain better understanding about myself and others.
Foucault talks about “ working at the edge of an un-thought, slowly building a language in which to think it” *
As I make
I see myself
at the edge of the un-thought
as if it where a cliff.
I can’t stop walking.
I have a notion of what I am aiming towards…and I walk, slowly building a path on the edge of that notion waiting to stumble, to trip; perhaps falling, rarely diving, some times nearer, sometimes further away and occasionally directly into
A work in progress exploring the weight of a womb and the affects on a body post-hysterectomy. The dough-balls manipulated and handled until transforming into fleshy appearing balls of otherness. Methods in the madness and madness in the methods, stitch us back up and contain the hysteria.
