> DESCRIPTION

Antibody will circle around an absent body. This body is not solid and central. Neither is it immediate, primal and expressive, like the body in Body Art. Instead, our body is mediated and extended by technology and completely commodified. This explodes and expands the body, as well as contracting and concentrating it. Each of the artists in the exhibition proposes a particular kind of authorship and artistic identity that is mediated through technology, media, and other things in the world that flatten, objectify, and erase the body.

The exhibition does not assume that this body is necessarily human, solid or three-dimensional. But it does assume that the question of the body is, in many different ways, central to these artworks and the way in which they were made.
