Limb on Limb: Media Jumping in Geologic Time
In this paper, Rebecca Schneider will consider a set of contemporary multimedia, performance-based artworks that gesture to or incorporate other artworks as homage — photography, sculpture, film. Emilio Rojas’s photographic series “Instructions for Becoming” responds to the nature photography of Laura Aquilar, and the entanglement of Rojas’s artwork with Aguilar’s mimics Aguilar’s entanglement of her body with rocks and boulders. Then, taking up artwork by Rebecca Belmore as well as a film by Roberto Rosselini, Schneider will ask about the multiple temporalities of flesh and stone in order to ask about how geologic time meets decolonial artwork on the move.
