Matthieu Croizier – Everything Goes Dark a Little Further Down

Diploma project by Matthieu Croizier

From freak shows to the invention of hysteria in the 19th century, the figure of the monster is created through images. The staging of abnormality reinforces the norm to which it is opposed. By means of self-representation, I seek to create a monstrosity out of the banal, turning my body into malleable and fragmented material. With reference to scientific and anatomical iconography, I seek to deconstruct normative representations of the body in order to construct new ones. To what extent does a body remain a body and how can it free itself from the norms that constrain it? croiziermatthieu@gmail.com https://matthieucroizier.ch
