Item Type: MRP
Creators: Robinson, Kyrie Adele
Abstract:

This paper explores fragmentation, looking at comics artist, Lynda Barry, and her comic memoir One! Hundred! Demons! In doing so, I read several visual self-portraits by women artists alongside “demons” from Lynda Barry’s text, thus thinking about women’s self-representation and the power of fragmentation. Barry uses memory in One! Hundred! Demons! allowing herself to work through and process events in her life. Comics combine embodied experience as well as mental processing and remembering. Mind and body come together to create meaning and to process the effects of embodied fragmentation. This is principally done through exploration of three types of fragmentation: with regards to the representation of women’s bodies, of memories, and in the structure of comics form itself.
