Abstract:

  • The body category is an important issue facing actual artistic theory and practice. In the present context of the development of technologies, can the body still be considered as a biological organism carrying the integrity of the subject? I attempt to explore the possibility of imagining the body in view of its present destabilized status. This reflection is developed through the concept of “performance” suggested by Judith Butler and certain sensual body perturbations in recent Canadian videos. How do the senses react to a destabilized body? What is a destabilized body? Do video performances of the body make possible the emergence of new categories and experiences of the senses?
