Enacting the Flesh: Bone Thief

naomifaith1

“In contemporary Western society, a postmenopausal woman has a one in four chance of contracting a type of osteoporosis in the latter part of her life. Those who are most at risk for this porous bone disease include white women of slight build and fair complexion, who have lived a relatively sedentary life and are now in the postmenopausal phase of their life. It is possible for the bone thief to remain undetected within the body until it has reduced bone mass by as much as 30 percent, resulting in incredibly brittle bones in the victim. Through the effects of osteoporosis, the body is transformed into a fragile and delicate structure, resulting in nervous uncertainty regarding movement and interaction with the physical world.

The objects that constitute The Bone Thief collection deal with degradation, transformation and death, as well as performance as a transformative and informative act, capable of re-imagining the body in public and private spaces.” [via NaomiFaith]
