even more things

Selection from Dust, collaboration with FLUCT; Monica Mirable and Sigrid Lauren, 2017.

All human experience is incarnate, that is to say: of the body. The body is the dimensionality of our being. The body is a process and both subject and object. The body is a connection rather than a boundary. The body is both biological and psychical—a hinge or threshold between nature and culture. The body is the inscribed surface of events; traced by language and dissolved by ideas, the locus of the disassociated self, and a volume in perpetual disintegration.

A performed body is never completely legible or fixed in its effects; it becomes meaningful through its encounter with the interpreter or viewer. A performed body makes us increasingly aware of our own state of simultaneous intersubjectivity and interobjectivity, with the latter understood to be a structure of engagement with the materiality of things, in which we recognize what it subjectively feels like to be objectively embodied. A performed body encourages an interpretation that aims to redefine the relationships between artist and subject, perceiver and object, self and other. Investigating the temporality, contingency, and instability of the body, bodily performances explore individual disorientation and the idea that the construct of identity is acted out beyond cultural boundaries: reaching to express a self that is fragmented, formless, and liminal.
