all our days are full of breath: a record of momentum

March 24–April 8, 2017

Curated by Jennifer Goodwin

Co-presented by the 30th edition of Images Festival

Justina M. Barnicke Gallery

all our days are full of breath: a record of momentum brings together two artists who foreground the body and movement as material in evolving choreographic works. Jessica Karuhanga and Brandy Leary transform the gallery into a place of kinesthetic field work — part performance, part laboratory, part choreographed sculpture. The artists utilize bodies, gestures and related detritus as their materials, mining personal, cultural, ancestral and corporeal archives.

The gap between live performance and physical traces of its movements draws attention to the presence and absence of the body, considering “how performance comes off the body.” — From a conversation with Francisco Fernando Granados

This exhibition is produced as part of the requirements for the MVS degree in Curatorial Studies at the University of Toronto.

Co-presented by the 30th edition of Images Festival running April 20 – 27, 2017 in various locations across Toronto.
