Body as Omen acknowledges the multiple ways in which the body can be articulated as a proposal. Each artist
addresses the intertwining of both transcendence and unequivocal placement within the body. Perhaps the
belief that there is some way of creating a vessel within the vessel is absurd, doomed to fail. Or perhaps there is
no gesture that holds vulnerability and agency together as clearly as the body performing. Body as Omen
proposes the articulation of present tense desiring future, but always existing as the moment that has been a
hinge between performance, body and desire. We know our ships are riddled with holes.
