"The Human Body"
2002-04-13 until 2002-05-05
d.u.m.b.o. arts center
Brooklyn, NY, USA United States of America

Is, then, the aliveness of something a ground on which we might wish to banish it as a candidate for beauty.Elaine Scarry, On Beauty and Being Just The Human Body features work by eight artists represented in the d.u.m.b.o. arts center (dac) Slide Registry. Challenging received ideas of physical beauty as an exclusively superficial trait, this exhibition scrutinizes and expands upon the aesthetics and potential meanings of the organic processes that bubble beneath our skin.

Suzanne Wright, Hedi Sorger and Sharon Malloy make closely observed and intimate portraits of both interior and exterior aspects of the body, while Gerard Gaskin, Daniel Zeller and Pedro Elias Cruz Castro ponder the cultural connotations of anatomical minutiae. David Schild and Laura McCollum take biology as the starting-point for more ambiguous, abstracted visions.

One is willing to labor, struggle, wrestle with the world to locate enduring sources of conviction - to locate what is true.  These artists seek that truth visually, as messy as it frequently is, using the human body as their medium, vessel and visionary device.
