My Eye Candy, My Somatic Fiction and My Body Archive

“To me the body is a cultural and a political archive. It is an archive that contains images, narratives and practices in it.”
Paul B. Preciado


How do we see, feel and control our bodies? What does the privacy of my body mean? We have different narratives about bodies, ideal images of bodies, beautiful ones, healthy ones, gendered ones. Our perception of the world is based on our bodies, our joy, our pain. The aim of the project is to reflect on these phenomena, we experience every day, with animated theatrical and improvisational elements focusing on materiality and sound. We invite the visitors for a virtual exhibition, for a journey to reflect on and investigate body perception and narratives around bodies. The exhibition is the continuation of the workshop series Archive B. researching bodies and different ways of performing.

The virtual exhibition will be released on the 20th of December 2020. The works will also be presented in Vapaan Taiteen Tila in January 2021.
