Local artist Aurora Elwell playfully explores themes of being physically disrupted and hurt in her first solo exhibition Antibody. Through wheel-thrown forms and intuitive hand-building processes, Elwell reveals a ‘place’ where the physical body and subconscious mind meet.
Utilising experiences of ‘bodily reclamation’ and referencing her own body image, Elwell draws upon the invisible and inhuman qualities of the human form. Her unearthly adaptations of the figure are uncanny yet familiar. Dreamlike and contorted shapes and figurative appendages recur disrupting the sculptures from a sense of reality, creating visual connections between mind, body and spirit.
Elwell’s works involve processing memories of trauma, isolation and bodily disengagement and through her practice, Elwell strives to provide an inclusive platform where the viewer can respond.
