Klara Lidén, Alicia Frankovich at Kurator

Klara Lide?n, Alicia Frankovich at Kurator

A desire to express a body. But of recent the body is expressed through objects and not "figuration" but its intermediary, witness ourselves by the surrogate of objects that address it.  Think of Cady Noland's institutional objects, learning something about the specifics of flesh under society. Of elder's walkers and handcuffs. We make objects for ourselves and so of course they express us. And eventually they exist for so long beside us, silently shape alongside us, that they begin to take on facets and express things that were latent, learning by proxy.
