Le septième pétale d’une tulipe-monstre 🌷
January 25 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The granular texture of my borrowed feelings
opens me up to the subtleties of subterranean strata,
to a swamp-body groaning and gurgling from its voiceless burrow.
I interweave my umbilical guts with those of my own invention;
I drift into a vast field, imagined and sensuous.
How does normativity and its many forms control our bodies? How might an exploration of the somatic imaginary uncover the potential contained in the tension between different transitional and circulatory states? Le septième pétale d’une tulipe-monstre [the seventh petal of the tulip creature] encompasses three exhibitions that invite us to reflect on ways of seeing the body that challenge its normative boundaries. These exhibitions bring together practices that reclaim and reconsider hybrid and uncertain bodies, bodies that explore the possibilities of metamorphosis. Each exhibition will include new articulations of the works and the relationships between them.
