Abstract

Do ̶N̶o̶t̶ Enter, Do ̶N̶o̶t̶ Touch, is an invitation to the viewer to enter the exhibition area and to interact physically with all the components of my installation. By this physical act of involvement, it highlights the questions of fear, vulnerability, courage and connection in relation to my personal history and my developing practice in art. I put these ideas into context, by looking at artists and thinkers whose work and life have been particularly useful and influential in the progression of my own work. Examining my own artistic development and its relationship to my previous careers in the healthcare profession, allowed me to investigate the feelings provoked alongside the materials I chose when producing art pieces. By condensing all this information, a narrative account of the installation presented in May 2017 will be discussed with analysis of the public’s response to it, and the pivotal role this had in understanding fear. I will end with some proposals for future research/practice.
