Remained examines the human body through zoomed and broad depictions by employing new mediums which facilitate the re-examination of the human form. The project consists of a video, a spoken-word poem, make-up based engravings, ready-made sculpture and a semi-opaque mirror sculpture. Each of these ‘fragments’ offers a some-what abstract depiction of a body part, section or element.
The fragments are naturally incoherent due to material composition and technique, and are open to viewer interpretation. These peculiar fragments are designed to invoke curiosity, voyeurism and multifaceted physical examination of the objects thus echoing the observers personal contexts.
Although the fragments can be viewed as stand-alone exhibits, they intend the compliment one another and contain parts of each other in a fractal manner. There is an inherent symmetry, for example, between close-up details of body parts in the video and the engravings made on the surface of make-up platers. The poem lyrics and spoken-word tempo act as an adhesive between the dissimilar fragments, altering the viewers perspective, and acts as a guides along the non-body part fragments.
