A Study on the Expression of the Body
as a Place of Change
-based on my works-
The definition of ‘uncanny’ is strange or mysterious, especially in an unsettling way and here, ‘canny’ means having or showing astuteness and good judgment. My idea of uncanny artworks attract viewers aesthetically but have an odor of suspicion. In my thesis, I question a duality of uncanny works and if there can conceivably be a poke in the eye regarding a context and image of uncanny artworks. I analyze this related to a controversial subject and material of the human body in the selected works.
