Fissures and Gaps: Our Unavoidable Edges

Gail Dodge with Anna Garner

Saturday, March 08 - 2:40PM to 3:00PM
Key 3-4

The collaborative works of Gail Dodge and Anna Garner address communication and disconnection in relation to the body and self. The performance-based videos document acts in which the characters infringe upon personal boundaries and investigate spaces of transition, focusing on elevating moments of nominal interaction within the public sphere. In "Smoking, Brushing, Blowing," the artists maintain an uncomfortable physical proximity while enacting absurdly intrusive situations, which question the ways personal space is physically and emotionally manifested. The artist's presentation will discuss this and other works that investigate autonomy and intimacy while emphasizing the mind's potential to engage or detach.
