Question: Tell me about “Bodies of Work”
Using sculpture and installation, I am exploring the limits of our corporal forms. It begins with our early realizations in childhood of what the limits of our physical experiences are; where do our bodies end and the rest of the world, begin? The other extreme deals with our certain deaths, and where do WE end? The work contains site-specific materials and themes related to exploring what we are, who we are and going back.
The title Bodies of Work plays off the idea of the retrospective, looking back where you’ve been to see how far you have come. This show is very much a homecoming for me in many ways. Not only is it a revisiting of my alma mater, and floods of memories, but also a return to a past way of working and sources of materials. Installing this show has afforded me the opportunity to work closely with Austin College staff and a group of students and as well as familiarize myself with their own artistic endeavors.
