Cornerhouse Projects: How to Build a Body Without Organs @ Cornerhouse
Opens Thursday 16th October
What’s in a body? We might say organs and bones, but French philosopher Deleuze rejects this answer. His theory Body Without Organs suggests that the body isn’t merely about the parts that make it work, but the fulfilment of potential to create something whole. In this selection of works, artists have reflected upon the process of clothing the body, emphasizing the role of dress in creating the whole ‘self’, or building a ‘body without organs’.
