CUFF opening and live performances June 3rd
No Body Now On Earth But Yours brings together the interdisciplinary works of Cassandra Davis and curated live performances to explore larger themes of ritual, spiritual experience and ecstasy. The exhibition will showcase her recent video installation Baptism in conjunction with the Chicago Underground Film Festival as this year’s featured video installation artist, as well as additional interdisciplinary works in this solo show. Cassandra Davis’ current body of work explores cloth as a form of establishing shroud and sanctuary, seeking to capture the spiritual ecstasy experienced by devoted believers. Her work arrives at intersections between her photographic discipline and investigation of materiality, her Pentecostal upbringing and current exploration of queer identity.
