Abstract [en]

Don’t eat the yellow snow—Urine in art: events of interpretationUrine seams to evoke feelings. Through four different lenses, this bachelor’s thesisexamines urine in four different works of art. The works of art are Three Grazes bySally Mann, Manneken Pis by Hieronymus Duquesnoy the younger, Fideicommissumby Ann-Sofie Sidén and Bad Bad Boy by Tommi Toija, all of which in some waycontains urine as part of their motif. The four perspectives are The body as abject, Thebody as observed, The body as communication and The body as phenomenon. Thethesis reaches the conclusion that urine must be regarded as part of a syntagm and thissyntagm is interpreted in the light of a culturally conditioned resonance, part of amake-believe culture that can and, as it were, also interpret water as urine. To interpretwater as urine depends on where the water is pouring from in an overall body syntagm.Furthermore, depending on what gender the body is interpreted as (male or female) theurine will carry different value connotations. Interpreting art is thus reverberating aMake-Believe regime as a recursive process. A Make-believe regime in itself containsa phenomenological intention.
