Abstract (English)

As Logue notes, this exhibition looks at how various women artists use performance-based video and film to examine the physicality and fantasy of identity in a personal context. Logue’s text combines biography, descriptions of the works in the show and her responses to them. Adams underscores the concept of mimicry in her reading of the works. A short statement or text by most of the artists is included. Biographical notes.
