There are three types of possible bodies in the cinema. There is the subject body onscreen, there is the camera as an imaginary body- a conduit body made up mainly of eyes choosing what we will see, and there is us, the audience bodies that do the watching through a system of involuntary physiological processes and cognitive responses that make up human perception.

THE NEW NEW CORPSE: (1971-2014, various formats, TRT 59 min)

To celebrate the closing of SECTOR 2337’s inaugural exhibition  The New [New] Corpse,  Christy LeMaster of The Nightingale curates a program of the same name and inquiry featuring six moving image works that frustrate our usual experience of bodies onscreen. These works subvert the traditional mode of watching bodies in narrative action, or as objects of sexual desire, or as merely characters. Rather these works use body as conceptual site, performative metaphor, or abstracted modular component.
