"The Body Stops Here: Keiko Narahashi and Sarah Peters."
Extending from ongoing conversations between the two artists, this exhibition combines their respective formations of bodies and parts of bodies—in particular, heads and faces. Works in various media by Narahashi and Peters highlight their distinctive uses of folk, pop-culture, and historic references and their mutual fascination with process, humor, ritual, and metaphors of embodiment. The Body Stops Here, a title drawn from a poem by Eamon Grennan, explores how a sculptural representation of a body can carry traces both delicate and forceful of the (artist’s) body that made it. Co-curated by Josh Blackwell '95, faculty in visual arts, and Anne Thompson, director of Usdan Gallery.
