Body as artifact

In Body as Artifact Knowlton works towards a reimagining of the human body in which the dialogue between the body and nature is emphasized; the connection between nature’s shapes, forms and symbols are examined and the body reclaimed as new object, still life and point of political protest. The images on show explore Knowlton’s interest in pushing the body further into abstraction leaving an interpretive space for the viewer to explore. In this abstraction, liberation beyond the subjective experience becomes a possibility pushing the body past solely the realm of objectification that femme bodies often dwell in.
