Auto-AffectionAuto-Affection: to give oneself a presence or a pleasure
In practices that are considered private––self-talk, self-touch, self-care––a gap is revealed between one and oneself. What objects and images enter here? This exhibition treats auto-affection as a creative process. Through sculpture, painting, and video, Auto-Affection teases out the theoretical and material relationships embedded in pursuits of self-experience and pleasure. It is a meditation on the meaning of our most intimate rituals, and an exploration of associated tools and traces.
