Through video, sound and photography, Obliterate the Subject moves us toward the dissolution of self. We build knots and hold tension in our minds. Practice is required to release, unwind, and let go. We wrap our bodies, in both life and in death, to reveal and to conceal. Obliterate the Subject is an exhibition that began, was incubated, and then produced against the backdrop of species-level trauma. Delayed momentum, fits and starts, bursts of energy, and interstitial stasis – the work included is emblematic of these feelings of pandemic purgatory. Each piece is an iterative exploration of seduction, abstraction, and performative gesture. Photo credit: Erin Elyse Burns. Knot I, 2022. Archival pigment print. 19 x 13 inches
