Kimberly Mayhorn: Transcend

November 15 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday until November 25, 2017

Humans are made of energy that is emitted everyday, affecting not only ourselves, but those around us. Mayhorn views energy that settles on the body over time as data. Whether interpersonal, political, historical, or cultural, this data creates invisible scars. Mayhorn views the body as a delicate organ that has the capacity to store energy frequencies of everyday experiences, systemic racism, inequality, generational trauma and is interested in how individuals recalibrate themselves.

Within the narratives presented in Transcend, Mayhorn explores how individuals heal, discharge negative data and carve out a space for themselves amid the noise. By conducting intimate interviews in her two-channel video, Release (2016), Mayhorn explores these ideas with five women as they share their own personal techniques of releasing and what that means to them.
