Influenced by assemblage, found objects and collage, Shona Crawford’s artwork is made in contemplation of the uncanny. Interests in systems, hermeticism, and the psyche inform their artistic practice, but the action of acquiring and juxtaposing material is crucial. These areas of interest are further channeled through their research focused on the creative and political climate of the Dada and surrealist movements of the early 20th century. Shona’s work is not only personal, but a comment on the practice of psychiatry and the social and technological changes leading humans from the past to the future. They have a special interest in early pseudoscience, and how it has affected our current day perspectives on mental health, gender, and normalcy. In an age where we have access to more information than we know what to do with, Shona is constantly amazed by how little we know about our minds and bodies.
