Press Release:

Lodos is pleased to present Cuerpos, an exhibition that proposes artworks of bodies as archives and sources of politics, dissidence, identity and document.

 

The works in the exhibition emphasize bodies that resist and adapt.

These bodies are subjects and producers of knowledge. They stand at the core of the political order overcoming, in some instances, unwarranted clandestine dispositions, and occupying markers of status and dissent. The bodies’ presence provides information on places, movements, actions and languages. The bodies as documents contemplate possibilities within impositions.

 

The bodies within the works are annotations of struggles.

 

Bodies are memories.

Bodies are modified, constructed, sculpted.

Bodies need nurture.

Bodies are transitory, momentary.

Bodies are actions. Bodies are speech.
