The New New Corpse
Curated by: Christy LeMaster
Poster Art By: Michael Hurst
Installation Art By: Sharareh Khosravani
The New New Corpse curated by Chicago-based programmer Christy LeMaster features six moving image works that frustrate our usual experience of bodies onscreen. These works subvert the traditional mode of watching bodies in narrative action, or as objects of sexual desire, or as merely characters. Rather these works use the body as conceptual site, performative metaphor, or abstracted modular component. This screening was originally presented as part of Chicago gallery SECTOR 2337ʼs inaugural exhibition The New [New] Corpse in December 2014.
Showing the Work of: Dara Greenwald, Poussy Draama & Fannie Sosa, Blair Bogin & Dayna Gross, Matthias Muller and Christoph Girardet, Pawel Wojtasik, Hermine Freed, Basma Alsharif.
