Far from Lost, Close to Found, 2005

This exhibition explores the common disparity between the classical and conceptual uses for the body and its actual use in everyday life. The body has typically been isolated and idealized through art, whether to provide a model for representational scale and beauty, or to show how the body belongs to the person, as do all of the significations attached to it. Useful as both of these approaches may be, they also push us away from any comprehension of how the body exists as a means of social expression. In most cases, we cannot help but contribute to the context of social expression which the body controls. From an early age, we are made superconscious of the type of body that we have, how we perceive its merits and its shortcomings, and how others perceive them as well. The disparity between one manner of perception and the latter fills in many of the gaps of early socialization. Bodies have a language all of their own, which may be a product of ethnic or sexual identity, a response to the population in which we move, and to a sense of our innate self-worth.
