BODY RUB

Artist Julie Rrap - Deconstructed Body

(archival print on watercolour paper)

Fetishised and fragmented female body parts, such as hair, skin, bare feet, shoes, breasts and genitalia occur frequently in Rrap’s work. The artist also uses strategies of erasure, inversion and reflection. A key thread in the exhibition is the artist’s recurrent exploration of body fragmentation, or ‘the ways in which [Rrap’s] work represents the body as a fragmented entity’.25 Rrap explores the body in pieces, where body parts are separated from their host body and manipulated, stretched or squashed.

Julie Rrap has been a major figure in Australian contemporary art for over twenty years. more
