Disembodied Woman

Jessica Bonenfant Coogan's avatar Jessica Bonenfant Coogan

Disembodied Woman is fearless. We ask what it means to let yourself be looked at – and are brave enough to open up the liminal space between looking and touching. We hope to present an interactive and thought provoking experience about the ownership of women’s bodies, objectification, and rape culture by bluring the boundaries between performer and observer. Disembodied Woman at ArtPrize will bring together performative research experiments created since 2011. Beginning with a residency at Performing Arts Forum in St. Erme, France, previous iterations have taken place in Brooklyn, NY at Micro Museum, ShapeShifter Lab, Triskelion Arts, and the Itinerant Performance Art Festival at Grace Exhibition Space. Chashama presented the project as a week-long installation in a storefront window in Manhattan’s Garment District, which was supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
