Kaethe Kauffman | Yoga: Interiore e Eterno
July 15, 2022 @ 8:00 am - November 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Hawaii-based artist Kaethe Kauffman’s exhibition Yoga: Interiore Eterno is an installation of prints on silk that documents both physical movement and meditative stasis. Using a string dipped in paint, the artist ties the filament around a hand, knee, elbow, or torso, and when the body part is flexed, the movement is recorded as a kind of off-printing. In Kauffman’s art, the body writes itself upon its own skin in a ritual of self-revelation. This act of marking and exposure is documented by Kauffman’s photographic images, which are digitally repeated and colored, drawn upon by hand in a variety of media and the vibrant results are printed on silk much like the large banners found in Buddhist temples. In an expansion of the body’s own “speech” through movement, Kaethe Kauffman’s images combine into larger fields of replication and mirroring, until the individual body is subsumed into a larger vision. A long-time practitioner of yoga and body movement, Kaethe Kauffman has been the subject of solo exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad. This exhibtion, “Yoga: Interiore e Eterno” is the first time the artist will be exhibiting in Venice, IT from July 15 – November 13, 2022.
