Four women artists, including Marina Abramović, bring war, violence and suppression into their work, using the most intimate canvas available to them: their bodies.
Body of Truth profiles four unique artists, exploring complex personal and universal themes.
Shirin Neshat works with the female body both as a sensual entity and a political space; Marina Abramović pushes through physical pain to attain freedom; Sigalit Landau uses her art to heal inner wounds; and Katharina Sieverding examines the artist’s duty to question ideas of national identity. Mining their personal histories for inspiration, these four female artists create challenging works of vulnerability and strength.
Featuring a post-film panel discussion with Elle Rusch Drakos, Caro Llewellyn, Hannah Fox and Manisha Anjali. Moderated by Jessie Alice.
