“It’s a Kafka high; you feel like a bug”- Naked Lunch- William. S. Burroughs
Creatively, this year, I find myself quite enthused by metamorphosis…
If you have ever delved into the absurd world of Kafka, more precisely his book Metamorphosis, you might understand my fascination.
As a firm believer in Existentialism, the belief that philosophical thinking begins with the human subject- not merely the thinking subject.
It starts with us as individuals with our feelings, experiences, disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world.
I came across a beautifully illustrated children’s version of the book and got really inspired to create my own morphed creatures. I was highly influenced by a photography and body painting montage of women and bugs and this is my version of them.
