[ISEA98] Artist Statement: Elizia Volkmann – Phat Media Blast

Artist Statement

Charting the artist’s rise to international media stardom as a result of deliberately adding 25 kgs to her bodyweight, ‘Phat Media Blast’ continues Volkmann’s use of her body as a site for art production, both as medium and art object.

This work has been realised during the artist’s residency at Cumbria College of Art & Design, made possible by financial support from Northern Arts. It will be shown at Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle from 14 November 1998 to 31 January 1999 as part of ‘CorpoREAL’.
