Bodies are a library of relational knowledge. The gestures they compose and the muscle memories they’ve developed make up the lexicon of this library, becoming tools of self-actualization and power. I utilize video installation, print media, fashion, sculpture, performance and experimental lectures to explore ways of viewing the body outside a perceived finitude of development—transcending a normative understanding of the subject as bound and contained. In this transcendence, the body is not a temple.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
