Catastrophic | Unit 3 Projects
By Bex Massey and Tanya Moulson
Catastrophic was conceived through Bex Massey and Tanya Moulson’s devotion to their cat and therein trying to unpick the misconceptions surrounding the historical sapphic associations.
The collaborative work talks of uncertainty and longing as Massey and Moulson layer and obscure in an attempt to decode the gaps in their cat’s language and themselves.
About the artists
Bex Massey’s work examines the role of painting and the language of display in the face of popular culture. She amalgamates simulacra and allegory to investigate notions of ‘worth’ via motifs extracted from her childhood. She refashions 90s/00s jpegs in an ‘awkward couple’ of garish nostalgia and traditional making techniques.
Tanya Moulson is a Welsh artist living in London working with film, photography and installation. Moulson looks at the relationship language plays in forming belief systems, belonging and ownership. Recent works have delved into fake news, conspiracy theories and natural phenomena and the surrounding rhetoric.
