(of something bad) Experienced or present to the maximum degree. The subject grounded in filth (Lacan).
Sometimes I just have to take a close look at the abject. It's a bit like our fascination for horror and gore, the ghost train at the fun fair. I don't want my primary art concern to be purposely ugly, there is already enough of that in the world. But I really can't tear myself away from the hideous scenes all around us. It's the big guilty secret, the needed soap opera entertainment for the tired classics student. Enjoy!
I have now moved back to London, inherently glamourous and impeccably manicured, but I will continue to upload any lovely abject objects should I come across them.
