BA Fine Art 2020

Abigail Brodie

Working therapeutically, auto ethnographic artist Abigail Brodie unpacks the traumatic baggage of childhood and the father daughter relationship, through the self created character and transitional object of 'CatLong'. The accompanying visual language of CatLong's world is rooted in fantasy and the surreal to help digest the lasting effects that trauma has on the everyday. Their practice is based upon the emotional process of depicting memoires, thoughts, and feelings in zine's that are often prompted by the dreaming unconscious and developed collaboratively with loved ones. This is with the aim in mind of understanding their neurosis and to move away from the act of memory repression.
