I've Only Known My Own
March 30 - April 16, 2016

She Works Flexible - Flex Space, Huston, Tx., USA

I’ve Only Known My Own is a group exhibition of new performance works that explore how the materiality of the body is translated or communicated through measurements, process, technology, and documentation. This exhibition looks at how the matter of the body might become a tool or force that generates or expresses its own (il/logical) systems, and thinks through how this material embodiment might function as a form of resistance. Rather than presenting a fixed set of works, the exhibition evolved over the course of its three-week run, with objects, props, and works being set in motion during the presentation of each of the 4 performances. Inhabiting the quasi-domestic architecture of the gallery, the artists worked within the rooms of She Works Flexible’s Flex Space, gradually interacting with the space and leaving traces behind.
