Featuring Séamus Gallagher, Eija Loponen-Stephenson, Sheri Osden Nault, Camille Rojas, Lauren Runions, and B Wijshijer

With accompanying movement workshop led by Danielle Smith

the body as a fever dream addresses the moments in which our understanding of and presence in our own bodies is fluctuating, moments in which we feel we do not wholly exist, moments where our physicality may encounter a limbo state between presence and absence. A digital dance performance acts as companion to the artworks in this exhibition, posing questions around how the body takes form in gallery settings and how meaning is made in the absence of performing bodies.
