Abstract

A REDUX of the previous version of The Lived Body, this was showcased within The Island at Tempting Failure in 2014. Here, the previously exhibited version from Glasgow was redeveloped in collaboration with sound designer Lee Chaos, allowing further expansion over the orchestration and collaborative live manipulation of the sound between both. The work was also faster and featured intensified sound, light and blood loss.

The title of the work reflects a term coined by Maurice Merleau-Ponty whose theories have influenced the practice of the artist. The work is an active deconstruction of the Being of the artist, through the gaze of each individual witness. Creating a multiplicity of Self/s through Flesh and other, the action reconstructs Being beyond sight to immerse all in the space of the Body:
