An Installation by Heidi Latsky
Saturday, May 18 • 7:00 p.m.
ON DISPLAY is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show – a commentary on the body as spectacle and society’s obsession with body image. People in the disability, performance and fashion worlds are often stared at and objectified in their daily lives.
Reverting the gaze is integral to disability culture. In this installation, the performers have the power to choose what they do or do not reveal, giving them control over a personal journey that cannot help but be affected by an audience. The tenuous and complex
relationship between viewer and viewed that exists in performative work also permeates everyday life for people who are different in some physical way, and hence draws attention to them whether they want it or not.
