Kafka’s unfinished first novel, published posthumously as Amerika, documents an imminent, alien journey toward the vast abstraction of landscape.
Amerika, presents an intercorporeality of liminal territories identifying more with Shangri-La than turn-of-the-century power. The artists in Amerika work around textile and conceptual sculpture, photography, painting, installation and performance to interrogate discursive practices that undertake the body that is formed, otherwise objectified or abstracted. Whether the body at stake constitutes a material engagement with Art History or social relations, environments, symbolic codes, rhythms, and aesthetic patterns, Amerika presents a poetics of non-arrival- an insistence upon the performativity of plurality rather than its ontology.
Opening Reception: Sep 26, 6:00 –11:00 pm.
