CONTRACTION 1, 2, 3

2019

All three Contraction sculptures reveal a body fragmented into its articulations. Wrists, ankles, knees, elbows, shoulders, and hips are disjointedly stacked as absence, as plaster totems. For this exhibition Cerqueira Leite has focused on the repetition of the human body in a contracted post that seems to repeat itself in different contexts and with different intentions. The pose is joined across its repetitions through the persistence of the human anatomy, which brings the body repeatedly into this position despite changes in culture technology, and time.
