Collage: The Art of Desecration

The body as location, as both subject and object, and the ways in which memory and trauma have their way with us is my endless fascination. Memories and trauma register in the body, forming an uncanny presence that awaits articulation. We cannot know the body until we contemplate its disappearance. To inquire is to desecrate, the destructive act of creation mirroring what happens to the body. In this meditation on the body and its interior and the world in which we are located, I encounter the space between longing and loss, memory and its erasure, permanence and dissipation.

 

We must cannibalize, we must memorialize.
