Curated by – Marli Davis

Mentored & Co-Directed by – Julius Poncelet Manapul

Introspective Beings – is a first-year showcase of self-portraiture works; fathomed, conceptualized and created within varying domestic quarters. Through imagery, symbolism and narrative, we peer into each student’s lived experience within educational seclusion. These works evoke reliance in a newly established way; themes, materials, methods and executions have been altered and curated towards each individualistic personage and state of being. Accompanying the ambiguous scope of vast introspective escapism, is a communally manifested intrigue towards the psychological self. The self is examined through culture, home, emotion, identity, mentality and diversity; challenged and explored at transformative lengths. In a time of uncertain, ever-evolving demographics, our students have responded with an ability to accept impediments and metamorphose exceptional growth, contrasting static restriction. Tuning inwards when the outer realm becomes detached; in this curatorial project, isolation is met with illumination. This exhibition documents how research and self-exploration can become a lifeline for expression when combating an external socio-political reality. Collectively significant, intimate, physical and allegorical realizations are what unites these artists across digital landscapes.
