Body in Pieces an experimental installation-in-progress, and sees the artist exploring new ways of working. The title 'Body in Pieces' references Nochlin's 1 analysis of the 'fragment as a metaphor for modernity' an age in which the individual is constantly migrant, uprooted from home, family and community; in which the intimate narratives of private life-worlds are increasingly internalised, the actor constructing sense of self relationally through giving, receiving, through love and loss, is constantly in the process of reconstruction. This mobility creates a prevailing sense of nostalgic yearning, of homelessness in which the individual seeks belonging, permanence and construction as whole, as existing or having identity.
