Installation view: Fragmented Bodies. February 27 – April 18, 2020. albertz benda, New York.
The immediacy of information afforded by new technologies and the proliferation of social media simultaneously promote connectivity and fragmentation; it is possible to peer into the lives of others for a brief moment or in continuous streams. Images presented as self-narrativization are consumed, analyzed, and reinterpreted, blurring boundaries between private and public.
Living and working within this context, the artists in this exhibition have created pieces that reflect both fluid and fractured aspects of identity. By manipulating and recontextualizing the body among continuously evolving personal and cultural symbols, previously unrepresented subjects emerge from the familiar outlines of the human form.
