EXPO 'Tributaries' - Metal Museum, Memphis (USA) - 4 Mai-24 Juin 2012 dans Exposition/Exhibition release2Blooms, Efflorescence, and Other Dermatological Embellishments – (Wart) 2009 Inkjet Print

Lauren Kalman’s work pulls from discourses dealing with the imaged body, consumer culture, body aesthetics and illness. Through the production of jewelry objects, photography, video, sculpture and performance, her projects visually link the divergent discourses.

Her current work replicates and transforms illness and trauma through performance, video, objects and photography. Diseases like acne, cancer, herpes, elephantiasis or physical trauma like amputation and facial reconstruction surgery, are presented as jeweled infections, fabric growths or wearable instruments. They are hybridizations of the grotesque or undesirable aspects of the body and objects we associate with beauty, status, health or wealth.

In conjunction with her exhibition, Lauren Kalman will give a public lecture on Thursday, May 3 at 7pm at Memphis College of Art in Callicott Auditorium. On Friday, May 4, 6-9pm we will have a free opening reception at the Metal Museum.
