Foreign Bodies explores the relationship between bodies and space – two often-contingent entities, one begetting the other’s character. Three artists create work in which performing bodies adjust to the real or imagined spaces they inhabit. 

View full project description

Foreign Bodies explores the relationship between bodies and space – two often-contingent entities, one begetting the other’s character. The nature of a space dictates the ways in which a body can move through and inhabit it; movements that challenge or stray from this expectation can alter one’s assumptions of how a body can be in space and how a space can serve the gestures of a body. Three artists create works in which performing bodies adjust the nature of the real or imagined spaces they inhabit. This awareness of the body in space is further magnified as visitors to the gallery move through other bodies in an attempt to access the work.
