Corporeal / Material Artist Talk

Corporeal/Material: On Performance Art and Photography is an online art exhibition that features the works and archives of 14 artists: Agung Eko Sutrisno, Alfiah Rahdini, Aliansyah Caniago, Angga Wedhaswara, Arahmaiani, Dea Widya, FX Harsono, Jason Lim, Jim Allen Abel, Redha Sorana & Slamet Riyadhi, Semsar Siahaan, Wimo Ambala Bayang, and Subashri Sankarasubramanian

This exhibition focuses on the two main categories where performance interplays with photography: as an archive that constructs its historical nuance and as an independent piece of art. The photographs featured in this exhibition range from archives to performance photography pieces, created as far back as 1977 and as recent as 2020. The wide generational range that this exhibition includes invites us to look deeper into how performance art has changed in the past 50 years, and how does the concept of presentness and audience-ship change with the advancement and increasing involvement of photography technology in performance art.
