Resurrections: Embodying bodies

This plaster-net-based panel was initially developed during the course “Arts, Technology and Philosophy,” a collaboration between the University College Groningen and the Art Academy Minerva (Groningen) guided by Dr. Martijn Boven (philosopher) and Roland Schimmel (artist). The panel was made by sewing myself onto the plaster net with different threads and by then cutting myself out through the net. With this performative act, I wanted to enquire about and critique ‘embodiment’ as another too abstract concept to ‘embody’ the body.

The panels, preliminary experiments more than final products, were exhibited at the University College Groningen (the Netherlands) on the 17th June 2019
