Zara Dudley

(she, her)

Zara Dudley’s practice predominantly addresses spirituality and its intersections with girlhood. Through the mediums of soft sculpture, video, collage, internet art and installation, Zara explores her personal journey of healing and recalibrating the self. These narratives are presented through the employment of found object, unmonumental materials and a personalised library of supporting imagery and symbols. Intuitive composition allows Zara to articulate aspects of spirituality that are difficult to demarcate through ordinary language. By creating a binary between the decrepit and beloved, she bestows the status of ‘ritualistic debris’ upon her idiosyncratic collection. The experience of sexual, social and spiritual trauma is communicated through the construction of private rituals, sacraments and scripture; ultimately cultivating her own private faith.
