Ghosts and Fragments

See how contemporary artists like Glenn Ligon and Nick Cave explore the nature of bodily presence, reconsidering the human body through its parts and its absence rather than by its corporeal, material weight. In this installation, disembodied artifacts—fragments of limbs, fractured objects, and haunting words—yield poetic, political, and subjective interpretations of the self, invisibility, and otherness.
