Abstract

Together with fellow artist/researchers, Mindy Lee and Andrew Hladky, we presented our new project, 'On Innards' at Body Horror 2, an international interdisciplinary conference in Athens, from 1-3 November 2013, now represented in three chapters in part two of the e-book volume called, 'Body Horror and Shapeshifting', edited by Jessica Folio and Holly Luhning. The body is unveiled, not as a terra incognita, but as terra to be rediscovered. The authors – whose diverse origins echo the multiple media used to convey their ideas – establish a link between bodily metamorphosis and psychological fissures. The body is a locus of paradoxes: deformed, infected, monstrosised or negated but at the same time fascinating, intimate or sensual. Here, readers will open the door of disruption. They will explore the flesh or the inner processes of the body, the idea of its degeneration, even its perception as a gaping wound. The authors in this volume question the very notion of identity as they embark on a journey to reflect on the self. Life itself is a shapeshifting dance we unknowingly join in its myriad of colours and moves. In part two: 'A Sensory Voyage of the Body', the three chapters of 'On Innards' are: a) 'Reflection on Digestion: The Mouth' by Amanda Couch; b) 'On Innards: Presentation of Artwork' by Amanda Couch, Andrew Hladky and Mindy Lee; and c) 'On Innards: A Three-Way Conversation' by Amanda Couch, Andrew Hladky and Mindy Lee.
