JOSÉE AUBIN OUELLETTE Body Blocks, Govanhill Baths: 8 – 25 April, 2016



Body Blocks

8 Apr 2016 – 25 Apr 2016

10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Saturday (Closed Sundays)

Govanhill Baths

Body Blocks is an installation of soft sculptures based on the ergonomic design of medical support cushions. The forms are determined by their supportive function in relation to the body and by their potential as props to be used in an expanded exercise practice. Ouellette has made and subsequently worked with the sculptures to develop a performance and sound work that respond to the contemporary trend in self-help through mindfulness apps.

Visitors are invited to use the sculptures to perform basic movements within the installation. By addressing the physical needs and the subjective experiences of the material body, this exhibition positions the figure in critical relation to contemporary art and creates a soft formalism that merges sculptural materiality with the body of the viewer.
