“Corporeal Consciousness” is a guided glimpse into a world of autonomy and existentialism. 


Shaped by themes of identity and constructed reality, a shift in governance begins to unfold through the abject manipulation of the body, foreign and familiar. The physical use of space speaks to the human experience, while abjection speaks to the divisions between I and Other, internal and external, cerebral and corporeal. While the weight and physicality of presence demonstrates the fragility of existence, the use of containment reveals a freedom through introspection and self-realization. Material hierarchy is subverted by the use of organic materials that are derived from the ground and form the body. 
This MFA Thesis exhibition manifests as mixed-media ceramic sculptures by Lauren Bradshaw and multi-media installation by Brooke Day.
