Jennifer Clay

Artist Statement Submitted 2016

Using a variety of media including video, installation, sculptures and performance, I construct narratives that investigate fear and anxiety through recreations of common horror entertainment troupes. 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 speaking directly to the audience. My work references supernatural and the fantastic phenomena juxtaposed with mundane urban and natural surroundings which is a metaphor for trauma and abuse in familiar places, people and things.
