BODY AND IDENTITY
This is a student exhibition of the OCADU Thesis Program in Sculpture and Installation.
Body and identity have entered into two different frames of existence. In today’s society, the body often exists as a physical shell for daily nuances and experimentation while identity is laid waste in the process. Suffice it to say, humanity’s survival depends on the renewed relationship between body and identity. When separated, traditions become lost, morals become skewed and genders become trivialized. In this exhibit, body and identity gain a new platform of realization as these facets are put on a pedestal; or namely, interpretive plinths. Each artist interdependently conveys through farcical and genuine means that body and identity were not meant to be under fragmented ownership, as dictated by current structures, but unified as a whole. The strength of this partnership is one that can divulge unnatural changes and outline the truths within gender politics. In effect, this exhibit could be the preface to regained self-awareness and the power of opinion that exists within every [body].
