MFA Blog, Fall 2018: Self Portraits

The body problem: is the body the Self? Or is it the container of the self? What happens to the self as the body is subsumed? Time, which is age, which is a construct.

The self is performed- as much as gender, as much as identity. So too, the body. The way it’s dressed, decorated, presented, absented.

The question, then: How much is public? How much private? Where does my body end and space begin? Where am I located within the body and its spacetime?
