“If you can manipulate clay and end up with art, you can manipulate yourself in it as well. It has to do with using the body as a tool, an object to manipulate.”
– Bruce Nauman(1990)

Body: Talk explores a range of concepts, dynamics and experiments of the body as visual language to understand complex forms of human expression. The show includes the topics specific to the body such as: the generation of ideas about the body through painting, sculpting, print making, performing, and photographing, the transformation of physical presence from the real world to the digital world.
