Board (1993) + others

Wood, J and Harrison, P (2017) Board (1993) + others. In: Body Media II, Power Station of Art, Shanghai, China, 29 April - 30 July 2017.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Wood, J and Harrison, P
Abstract: Body Media II has incorporated the industrial architecture of the Power Station of Art – a fragment of modernity – into the exhibition as a “cold body.” This cold body will be infused with warm languages and heated narratives that allow the audiences’ bodies to move and circulate within it like the flow of blood, testing whether the space, the works, andthe audiences can act in accordance with each other. Throughout the process we will, encounter exhausted bodies, contrasting bodies, moving bodies, and illusionary bodies; see how the body can become a substitute for time; discuss the relationship between the body and identity in the virtual world; experience how the body is documented, extracted, readjusted, and reprogrammed; trace how photographic and videographic techniques have transformed our perceptions of the world; and as well discover how bodies, in their representations, can intrude and affect our relation to the real.
