In this thesis I describe how I have integrated the imagery and symbolism of the Bear and the Rabbit into my creative practice. I have proven how narratives and especially those of fairy tales, including but not limited to "The Woman Who Married a Bear" and "The Bear Skin" by the Brothers Grimm have greatly inspired my writing and thesis exhibition. In my current artistic work I explore the aesthetics of the Grotesque, Carnivalesque, and the Cute. I also address the concept and the symbolism of my installation of the "Cave", and describe the work in the exhibition space.
