Clementine McGaw showcases these new works this September at City & Guilds MA degree show in London. In Clementine’s new explorational series/installation ‘The Nothingness of Our Own Existence’ she questions and analyses the potentiality of our own existence through paint. The paintings are treated as sacred human/non-human objects in which McGaw relates to flesh and the nothingness of it. The series of work is heavily inspired by the writings of Julia Kristeva, Darian Leader as well as the theories of human potentiality by Georgio Agamben.
‘The painful realisation that the object already contains the possibility of non-existence-a nothingness has been created’
