Digitally Embodying (Dis)ability

Digital Embodiment curatorial talk and conversation, 2019

A conversation with Madeleine Boyson followed by a curatorial talk. The exhibition features works that ignore physical and material boundaries. Instead of performing live in front of a public audience, the artists perform off-stage in a private space for digital recording devices, i.e. an audio recorder or a camera, and various computer software. This way, the audio recorder, camera, computer, etc. become the point between the private and public, the material and immaterial, the visible and invisible, the audible and the inaudible. In the end, the completed digital artworks become an immaterial representation for the artists’ material bodies, i.e. a digital embodiment.
