MINOR BODIES // Karen Sherman // 3.8.18 – 3.31.18
Tenderness and violence, donation and discrimination, how we keep each other alive and destroy each other are central motifs in Minor Bodies, which includes objects and drawings exploring blood donation, fugue states, heat waves, laboratory animals, family, astronomy, and the body. Together, they create a latticework of images that plumb the consanguinity between humans, events, animals, objects, and beliefs.
Minor Bodies is part one of Universal Donor, a three-part, interdisciplinary project. Part two, a dance-based work will premiere in 2019, with part three, a single-edition book, to follow. karenshermanperformance.org
