Abstract or Description

The body. The ruin addresses the body on two accounts. One concerns the way in which artists use the body as a tool for description or for experimentation in response to their own present moment (that is, a single moment of time with all of its personal, historical and cultural resonances). The second concerns the way that the body is able to operate as this tool—the way in which we read,
understand and play with the languages of the body.
