Ros's Broken Social Norms
I am an artist who works with performance, video and installation. The subjects that are included are on personal levels but not from experience, this is an interest that has been found in the process of working throughout the years. The work that is shown is originally based around the idea of psychopaths and sociopaths, Most psychopaths and sociopaths are known to be serial killers. Killing people obviously is not an acceptable social code. Therefore, the idea of breaking social codes makes sense to work around. The artwork that is featured is when the social code of not acting in a certain way in specific situations which will been broken. An artist that is an inspiration is Gillian Wearing who made the performance called Dancing in Peckham. This involved the artist dancing in a busy shopping centre where people would look at her in confusion because this is not a social norm.
