L’Echange by Caitlin Berrigan
The medicalized, merchandized, and sexualized body are among the cultural filters that influence our experience of embodiment. In her work, Caitlin Berrigan questions the world of representation through encounters between bare flesh and the fantasy of the image. She addresses our attractions and repulsions to violence, desire, and possession via performance, video, and intimate objects. Critical, but also inventive, she deconstructs the mechanisms of imagery through playful, subversive works.
