"You can do twice as much as you think you can and five times more than your mum thinks you can..."
Andrea Jespersen’s installation in the Foyer Space examines the cultural phenomenon of superheroes and superpowers, and our need to create and believe in the ‘Ultimate Hero’. Jespersen's work comments on our culture, our habits, our knowledge and faith. Central to her practice is an awareness that we struggle to grasp what reality really is.
Jespersen’s mixed-media practice originates from the use of found objects. Through examination and re-presentation Jespersen transforms these objects into abstract relics from everyday life. Abstraction and a denial of narrative structures are used as a strategy to collaborate with the viewer and legitimise questions rather than validate answers. The works are removed from any role of function, context or explanation to become symbols and ghosts of human logic.
