The Listening Body, November 2

The Listening Body encourages a physical understanding of the world. Listening in this way – from the gut, from the feet, toes, and lungs – connects us to the present moment. This act, returning to one’s body, eludes the signals broadcast to us by the analytics and algorithms of a commodity-centered culture. A listening body is one brave enough to shake and shed off the external pressures that ask us to commodify ourselves. These figurative works are attuned to the resonance of a listening body: a body that mourns, celebrates, loves, tickles, and rests.
