THE MACABRE APPEAL, SHOCK VALUE, EXHIBITONISIM
Engrossement and fascination to defy and observe the sinful–the immoral state of being. A profound reflection–the preoccupation and obsession to confront evil, to stir the emotions, to evoke, to awaken the subconscious; the unmitigated deliberation to proceed on this pathway to repulse and shock, PSYCHOLOGICALLY INSTRUMENTAL–provoking a reaction of negative emotions. But, does this open the channels for deliberation and interpretation, good or bad–shockingly repellent–deliberately startling, offending the audience by violating norms for social values and personal ideals—but, heightening awareness of significant social issues, taking a stand against infringements on human rights, opening a debate—controversial, but conceivably enlightening. The word Macabre comes from the French phrase DANSE MACABRE “The Dance of Death” a popular subject of art and literature in the late Middle Ages. Since the beginning of time famous painters have used the Macabre Appeal—to attract, to shock.
