Abstract

As Yet Uncertain: A Portrait in Procession is an installation of prints featuring a combination of image and text. Drawing inspiration from various depictions of the grotesque in art and literature, the project examines the grotesque form, both in body and mind. As Yet Uncertain: A Portrait in Procession observes how the grotesque—a body that is always in the act of becoming—relates to uncertainties and ambivalence in identity and humanity.
