Light Year 56: Limb from Limb
LIGHT YEAR 56: Limb from Limb
Video Art Exhibit projected onto the Manhattan Bridge
Thursday, December 5, 2019 | 7 - 10pm *****Best place to view: from the Pearl Street Triangle
Curated by: Kate Gavriel
Participating Artists: Laura Bernstein, Lizzy DeVita, Kyoung eun Kang, Maggie Hazen, Lawrence Mesich, Mariana Peragallo
The works in Limb from Limb focus on our extremities and appendages – arms, legs, hands, feet, heads, and hair. While the human experience of embodiment may bring these parts together into a unified whole, these videos highlight our physical existence as assemblages of these various pieces – exploring the humor, humility, and horror of depersonalization.
