Deanne Holden’s 2013 Degree Show at DJCAD

Body of Work

Deanne Holden’s creative process began when she read “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot, and “Stiff” by Mary Roach, which moved her to consider the body after death in a different light.

Her collection of sculptural jewellery, which incorporates structures based on abstracted surgical incisions as well as castings from bone and body parts,  is also influenced by Memento Mori (symbolic reminders of the inevitability of death), as well as how the dead continue to live on through contributions to medical science.

The Degree Show Collection explores the idea that once you take away the notion of ‘self’ from the cadaver and the emotional associations of death, dead bodies have the potential to be beautiful.  As objects they fascinate, even more so when parts are removed from their original context. Out of context, they can be grotesque; their placement away from the body, disconcerting, unnerving, yet they can still leave the viewer enthralled.

By exploring themes of dissection and anatomy, this body of work is the beginning of a series reflecting on mortality and the notion of the purposefulness after death.
