Words by artist, Chloe Octigan:
This Age is an artwork capturing this moment not only in my life but also in the lives around me. Here is part one of this series, as displayed through a collection of identical questionnaires filled out by a group of people, acting as a fun way to get to know someone. My inspiration for this series was born through celebrity idolization.
I found myself loving to read about an actor’s favourite book or a musician’s best childhood memory, but what about those around me? I adore my circle of friends and treasure and celebrate their opinions. This is a way to immortalise those very opinions. Connection through artwork can often be layered and meaningful, especially through abstract work. I wanted to counteract that, by making something simple in it’s nature, but still relatable and interesting to take in.
