CORPORA IN TRACTUS: BODIES IN SPACE
Performance and Reception for the Artists: Thursday, November 29, 5-7 pm
Work from Fanny Allié, Annie Berman, Seline Baumgartner, Nina Buxenbaum, Bojana Coklyat, Luisa Kazanas, Nupur Mathur, Naomi Elena Ramirez
The artists in Corpora In Tractus work with the body. From this starting point, the artists push inward toward personal exploration and outward to the political landscape. Just as land becomes landscape only once a frame is put around it, the body defines itself by its scale and the relationship to its context. This frame of understanding creates who we are and how we become what we are. The challenge these artists have given themselves is to transform the limitations imposed upon the body, to define those frames and push against them. The exhibit includes work in performance, video, painting, sculpture, and mixed media.
