Lightbox IV: Miao Zhao, An Original Dessert, This egg-like image is made out of Chinese herbal jelly, condensed milk, tofu and water. It’s a dessert and installation rolled into one.
With evolving multimedia installations by artists, Laura Marsh and Phil Lique, No Pop Directors, and a site-specific Body Duel installation by Aude Jomini and Laura Marsh.
The body is fluid and tissue. The body is a vessel for consciousness. The body is a fetish object. The body is subject to and the object of gaze. The body is political. The body is a site for medical research and for ritual. The body is a host for parasites. The body is always present, but not always attended to. It must be fed to be sustained. The body is a subjective experience. The body is alienation. The body is a status symbol. In the technofuture, the body may face planned obsolescence.
A one-night screening, BODY DOUBLES includes video work from ten artists whose methods of production are as heterogeneous as their bodily experience. Ranging from performance documentation to cinematic vignettes, the assembled videos will be screened in pairs that are in conversation, or counterpoint.
Meg Fama and the Farm Belly Truck will be right outside!!
