Images: Victoria Gray, from Universe II and Universe III, 2013
I have been invited to produce a new piece of writing in parallel to Kinesthetic Universe, a forthcoming film by artist Victoria Gray. Gray makes live work that is located between performance and sculpture; performances that are sculptures and sculptures that are performances. Using minimal materials, primarily the body, the work explores the politics of movement and ways in which sociocultural factors inscribe and exert control over the body. Through performance actions, the work considers how the body might be antagonistic and resistant to dominant techniques of corporeal inscription, silencing and subordination. More to follow soon.
