Jennifer Clay

Artist Statement Submitted 2017

Using a variety of media including video, installation,and performance, I construct narratives that investigate fear and anxiety through recreations of common horror entertainment tropes. My work is inspired by the playful aesthetic of educational children’s TV shows which can be seen in my use of stop motion animation, overly embellished costumes and puppets that speak directly to the audience. My work references supernatural and fantastic phenomena juxtaposed with mundane urban and natural surroundings to represent disfunction such as trauma and abuse in familiar places, people and things.
