BOOM BOOM POW
Produced between 2009 - 2010 this body of work was presented for exhibition as part of Emilie St.Hilaire's Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Manitoba School of Art.
Initially aiming to re-imagine the dainty porcelain sculptures the older generation in the artist's family seemed to admire, the figure evolved to portray contemporary characters engaging in sexualized dances as witnessed in night clubs. Later works feature more metaphorical illustrations of romantic entanglements or personal emotive gestures. The final work in the series is a life-sized bride in two parts strewn across the gallery floor. The title of this collection refers to a song by Lady Gaga popular around 2009.
