Narratives of corporality : a small personal collection

University essay from Konstfack/Ädellab/Metallformgivning

Author: Roberta Burchardt; [2010]

Keywords: body; corporality;

Abstract:

There is great truth to be found in the thought that whatever I do today, will never come close to what I will do tomorrow. It is within the simplicity of such thought that we foresee the build-up of the being through the body and experiences lived by the body.

The present work is an attempt at sharing a personal research over the topic of the body through a contemporary perspective. The body as performatic tool for the understanding and interconnection of art and life is the prerogative for the dialogue proposed here.

Through the study of some writers and artists, a personal language comes forward and presents a text to be read fully or partially: as a whole or as fragments.
