Chantelle Knight

Throughout Chantelle’s professional practice, she explores the idea of physically representing impalpable experiences relating to trauma, disassociation and mental health. She uses the human body and other amorphous and organic matters as tools to manifest these experiences into a physical reality. Due to the fact she works intimately with emotionally jading topics, her creative practice has diverted toward considering the therapeutic function of her creations. Representing these experiences in physical form has helped her as an individual see how cognitive experience grows and changes, and thus, her body of work now is no longer static and is representational of growth and movement. Her amorphous figures, which float in a body of non-space, exist as a synergised oeuvre and are to be viewed as one singular kinetic movement.
