Join Gallery 400 for “Thinging Bodies”: a screening curated by Danny Giles on October 5 at 6PM.
Curated by Danny Giles, “Thinging Bodies” brings together video work of artists employing the body as sculpture or prodding the relationship between our bodies and the object world. Contemporary visual practice can enlighten old and new discourses of materiality, the self, and objecthood by transgressing the boundaries of our conceptions of identity, ‘thingness’ and belonging. These works trouble our perceptions and understandings of the self and of the being of objects in space and time by exploring material life, and the ways in which our bodies are defined and differentiated in the world of things, objects and commodities. This screening explores new ways of embodying objects and ‘thinging’ bodies.
