Facebook post by University for the Creative Arts - UCA

UCA MA Fine Art graduate Sally de Courcy spoke to Luca Curci from ITS LIQUID about her work.⁠ ⁠ Sally is interested in repetition of cast objects and works in different mediums including bronze. The objects are re-assembled to reveal a narrative.⁠ ⁠ Her impressive artwork portrays her medical experience of working with refugees, which often stands for those who are treated as less than human. The philosophical reasons for repetition of violence through history explored by Butler and Zizek have influenced her, together with artists Doris Salcedo, Ai Weiwei and Mona Hatoum who transcend their autobiographical experiences to comment on thematic human issues. ⁠ ⁠ The Covid-19 pandemic has led her work to reflect humanitarian concerns. Sally is a member of IAVA, International Association of Visual Artists @iavaarts. ⁠ ⁠ When asked which role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art? Sally said "Contemporary Art for me is conceptually based on extensive contemporaneous research and ideas in the sciences and humanities, such that the artist becomes a medium in society to share sometimes challenging ideas creating an open platform for discussion and interpretation."⁠ ⁠ Read the full article: https://bit.ly/36e98ZW#WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #art #artist #design #artwork #creative #sculpture #contemporaryart #fineart #modernart #contemporary #handmade
