Performances at The Quarry, Massachusetts, August 2013: Embedded and Reclaimed

Seeking to disrupt normative codifications of the body and its experiences,  and in particular the gendering of the body through relationships with objects and technology. How can the gendered body show its experiences? How can we move beyond prescribed identifications, and towards empathy with the flesh? How can we make strange the language of being in and representing the body? This work seeks to explore such questions, in a site responsive performance at the Quarry in Acton, Massachusetts.  Intervening in a masculinised site signifying, strength, progress and dominance over nature, through acts of wilfulness and resistance emphasising experiences a female body through material interactions.

With many thanks to Yin and Viktor at  Contemporary Arts International for their warm hospitality.
