After Ever: A Project
thesisposted on 13.05.2020 by Michelle Neal
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
‘After Ever: A Project’ investigates how a visual art practice might elucidate the diminished sense of security experienced with ambiguous loss. The research examines how ambiguous loss may be identified and understood in art practice, and provides new ways of understanding the methodological, material and conceptual choices made by artists whose work concerns loss, security, collecting, mastery and/or everyday materials. The project proposes that such works can be read through the lens of ambiguous loss, creating the potential for new readings and the development of new avenues of critique.
