Bad Spells
    Fiona Robertson

    In this piece I seek to explain and analyse my practice with specific reference to my recent book of drawings Bad Spells, and the related cross-medium project immediately preceding and feeding into this, Green Head. Beginning with the artist Antonin Artaud and theorist Julia Kristeva both foundational to my recent practice, I move on to examine the ways in which other artists have approached similar terrain, in particular the concept of the ‘Body without Organs’. Through a combination of personal reflection and close reference both to theoretical concepts and the work in Bad Spells they informed, I aim to provide a fuller image of the ideological and ideographic underpinnings of my drawings and my works relevance to broader questions of expression, intelligibility and physicality.
