In Certum quod factum, artist Courtney Askey creates an exhibition of contemporary artworks conceptualising the cyborgian self portrait. This work of autofiction draws parallels between the life of the artist and that of the fictional cyborg character, Hercy B. Exploring themes of identity, solitude, labour and the digital self, Courtney reflects on what it means to be an artist in 2022.
Certum quod factum.
(One is certain only of what one builds.)
The exhibition features a body of work created in video, installation, sound, and text that was created during the artist’s six month residency at Leicester Contemporary between September 2021 and March 2022. The residency was sponsored by StudionAme as part of their Toru Namekawa residency scheme.
