For the finissage of this exhibition, the installation of The Novels of Elsgüer will be activated by a live performance with Phoebe Yì Líng Chang and Francisco Gonzalez.
Co-presented between Studio XX and articule in the context of the HTMlles Festival 2018 | Beyond the Hashtag, Code : Body is an exhibition about how the body is monitored, bullied and constrained, forced to stay within the limits dictated by white patriarchy. From virtual reality to digital photography, each artist counteracts these codes in order to give agency to people who are ignored, yet whose bodies remain controlled.
The process-based photo installation Untitled (Men Responding) by Lesya Nakoneczny is concerned with the objectification of women in social media and gender inequalities in the cultural industry.
Laura Acosta and Santiago Tavera present The Novels of Elsgüer (Episode 3) – Live Despecho, an immersive installation about how migrant bodies and their multiple representations yearn to belong.
