Mimesis Transition evokes upon the notions of alienation, mimicry and adaptation through the medium of taxidermy and drawing. The works oscillate between reality and imaginative fantasy that re-represent nature in the abstraction of form. Identities are stripped away, anatomies tampered with and taxonomies distorted. This results in the desirable ambiguity of confusion, unsettlement, enigmatic quality that acts as an entry point for the viewers to uncover and discover nature’s true identity.
Organism that lacks natural defensive mechanism mimics other species in order to blend in, adapt and survive. Vulnerable and fragile organisms form a group to deceive their foe. A predator imitates other species so that it can approach its prey without alarming it.
A series of drawing accompanying the body of work serve as a blank canvas for pre-visualization and mark making process, that helps with the exploration and understanding of form, material and space.
Christine’s art practice combines interests in people, observations and narratives. She has solicited friends, family, acquaintances and strangers to take part in various conversations prompted by her request for them to describe a photograph or the story the photograph suggests. Through these interactions Christine observes the individuality of her participants, their personalities and behaviours. From this she learns about the nature of human beings.
