I’m not an island, I’m a body of water

I’m not an island, I’m a body of water

The idea of the human possessing and presiding over a body has become a contested idea of late. That is to say, the body as a stable entity and unit of reference has become disputed insofar as we are witnessing an increased need for the interdependence between life forms and modes of being, in times at which the stable backdrops for our living and working practices have become equally unstable, or ceased to exist altogether. Simultaneously, in the words of philosopher Rosi Braidotti, our very embodiment is a limit, as wall as a threshold; our flesh is framed by the morphology of the human body, it is also always already sexed and hence differentiated.2 The exhibition I’m not an island, I’m a body of water presents the work of three artists that investigate this paradoxical and conflicting state: the human body as an inescapable limit and threshold, faced with a growing consciousness that the anthropocentric feedback loop through which its worldview is objectified does no longer come full circle.
