Video – Drawings – Installation
With their collaborative installation INCONTINENCE REVISITED the artists Anna González Suero and Sunjha Kim confront body images in the mass media. Understanding media as a mirror, which reflects this and the individual, they oppose normative standards with an interpretation of individual, deviating body experiences.Their multi-layered installation, which recomposes both conceptual as well as formal and aesthetic fragments of bodies, deconstructs the borders of general, subject, and perception in its idiosyncratic combination. In doing so, they build upon a feminist discourse that questions the illusion of a naturally homogeneous body.
INSIGHT SKIN deals with the way trauma transforms a body, its behaviour and shape. This performance investigates the boundaries culture places on women, their sexuality and shape, thereby dictating what they may hide o reveal. INSIGHT SKIN challenges the boundary between inside and outside and the implications of each. It discovers hidden layers inside the body that are thought to be repulsive and seeks to transform them into agents of new possibilities, while no longer treating the skin as a boundary. Within INSIGHT SKIN, an alternative body is created, one in which the terms „disa! bility“ and „imperfection“ are irrelevant. A body, which naturally produces its own movements and way of being. The transformation undergone by the body in the course of the performance is an expression of surpressed interior conflicts and past encounters with reality. Through this transformation, a dialogue between different sides of the skin and a discourse of aesthetics is created. INSIGHT SKIN turns the inside out and leaves nothing undiscovered.
