Corporific.actions | Embodi.ments

The Corporific.ações exhibition brings to discussion, works that put into discussion the process and the gesture of deconstruction of the idea about the universal body, assuming in this way, the proposing corporality regarding the potentialities in its creation of subjectivities such as gender, ancestral, racial aspects as well as identities.

In situations such as in the images by Mirela Cabral and Gabriel Botta, both artists start from the construction of the image from observation, and that, however, use gesture to bring the figure to the limit of abstraction. Therefore, this defragmented body opens itself to the potency of building new subjectivities. We can observe this initial movement in Samuel de Saboia’s paintings, where the disfiguration of the body gradually gives way to its own subjective reformulation regarding raciality and identity.

In Luisa Almeida’s woodcuts, as well as in Katia Salvany’s paintings, we have the figure of the woman, sometimes in its potential revolutionary aspect of resistance and militancy, sometimes in more symbolic and spiritual moments. Nazareth Pacheco’s photographs bring discussions about the plastic reconstruction of her own body in the face of the record of a pre-surgery. Élle de Bernardini presents herself covered in gold leaf, placing her body as a valuable matter, at the same time that she provokes and discusses the situation of identity that overflows beyond the conditions of cisgender.

The figure of the body is also presented in a blurred form amidst the architecture that surrounds it, where the subjectivity of the landscape is evidenced from the details that we can observe in the bathroom tiles painted by the duo Tangerina Bruno. In Carlos Mélo’s record, the body represented from the back faces a skull that is in his hands, creating a dialogue that reaches into questions about existence, and also about death.

It should be noted, therefore, that in this set of images that make up the exhibition, we do not have a homogeneous and closed idea of the body, but as an embodiment before the infinite possibilities of which it can unfold. In this sense, it is less a noun than a verb by which it is always under (re)construction during the flow of its life and its infinite possibilities of coming-to-be.
