(n) BODY

6-9 PM

FiveTen Studio will be hosting a Opening Reception for our new show (n) BODY, showcasing the work of Monique D. Lopez. (n) BODY will be on from October 9 through until November 16.

This is what Monique D Lopez says about her work...

Mikhael Bahktin describes the grotesque body as "a body in the act of becoming. It is never finished, never completed; it is continually built, created, and builds and creates another body." Throughout my practice there has been a a continuous metamorphosis - a transformation that has continued from one "body" of work to the next. Like Bahktin's grotesque body, certain aspects in the work inform each other as to what change needs to be taken to create the next "body."

For this exhibition, different "bodies" of work will be presented that possess the dualities of contained /uncontained, revealed/unrevealed, and internal/external. As site specific installation will be created that will consider the architecture of the gallery, specifically the windows. Here I will be able to experiment with the transparency of the windows and make a new "body" that will bring the outside in and the inside out.
