[ISEA98] 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.
