Abstract (English)

"Modelled on amateur, do-it-yourself instructional exercise videos, these works confront myriad systemic oppressions while acknowledging and celebrating the resilience and strength of resistance. Commissioned for this exhibition as the newest video in the series, Exorcising America: Conditioning Exercises references resistance-based workouts to insist that strength and power are not synonymous nor interdependent, and that conditioning for strength is necessary to dismantle power. Presented in the context of a university, these videos challenge institutional content, as well as the assumed relationship between education and access to elite infrastructures." -- Publisher's website.
