The abject ‘Other’

“I am undertaking a critical genealogy of human displacement from the 19th century into late modernity, tracing the socio-political abjection through narratives of loss and movement. In this way I will look to connect my work with artists through the centuries who have depicted the abject ‘Other.'”

Caroline Burraway’s body of work aims to confront socio-cultural issues that lie at the core of modern society and with what lies hidden beneath in the everyday lived experience of the marginal individual and their relationship with the world they always already inhabit.
