Self Portraits – Absurdity


Absurdity in Art

Humour is a powerful tool in challenging the norms and attitudes of individuals. When the humour involves the absurd, a viewer engages with different representations of reality.

Most artistic engagements in this type of humour reflect on the idea of “self” as though the absurd version of the reality of self is more illuminating than the reality of it.

Absurdity in art shows an inverted and contradictory version of reality that juxtaposes multiple realities in order to invite people to look at life differently.  — Mina Zarfsaz, Science Center.
