Dazibao Gallery, SESSION 24 (Spring 2020)


Unmaking Galatea

The Sessions program is intended to be a series of live, punctual and open-ended events that invite someone to reflect upon image-based practices. Adapting Session 24 to the context of social distancing, Hilary Bergen returns to text — a more conventional mode of reflection, tackling subjects that are anything but conventional. Through the lens of posthumanism, Bergen explores fantasies of creation, possession and control in relation to the feminized body. Hilary Bergen’s Session offers a response to the work of Rachel Maclean and a meditation on the gesture of making.
