Jane BoyerArtist, Curator, Project manager, Writer
My work explores the relationship between simulacrum and autobiography by looking at issues of translation, appropriation and inherited style bias. Thanatography, the description of a death experience, is a factor in this exploration too, but not in the sense of actually describing an experience of death, rather in describing a past self, which no longer exists. My work is an autobiographic tale, which is simulacral by nature – retelling a telling of an ‘I’ that does not exist.
