This is My Body features performance-based videos from international artists that boldly demand body autonomy through performative action. The selected artists shake the fraught roots of patriarchy by re-telling and in some instances, re-inventing, their personal and historical autobiographies. What does it mean to present - My Body, My Female Body, My Gender Non-Conforming Body - amidst our present post-Trump, heteronormative revivalism? The selected works offer an urgent reminder that gender and racial equity are far from actualized.
Featured Artists: Chun Hua Catherine Dong (Montreal, Canada), GOODW.Y.N. (New York, NY), Katya Grokhovsky (New York, NY/Ukraine), Tone Haldrup Lorenzen (Berlin, Germany/Denmark), Alison Pirie (New York, NY), Natacha Voliakovsky (Buenos Aires)
