In the book,´Sensing Movement, Living Spaces,´ Susanne Ravn explores and describes how 13 professional dancers, as expert movers, offer enriching insights into movement and body consciousness and in particular into the internal sensing of movement that in a variety of ways takes centre stage in the dancers praxis. All 13 dancers have established international careers and represent a cross-section of genres and backgrounds in classical ballet, improvisation, modern/new dance and techniques related to Butoh and Body-Mind Centering. This allows the author to make a comparative study of ways in which lived experience can be structured and of how space, sensing and memory are shaped and given form in movement. The book interweaves ethnographical studies with a phenomenological perspective to explore how movement is essential to experience. In the central part of the book this layered approach allows Ravn to take the diversity of the dancers descriptions to suggest that their expertise in movement offers important material for phenomenological descriptions of movement and body consciousness.
Oxyrhynchus is a city in upper Egypt that was established in 332 BC and is considered one of the most important archaeological sites ever discovered. Saville references the layer upon layer of discoveries at Oxyrhynchus in her new body of work, the final effect being a mysterious narrative of layered bodies and images. The dozen new works presented are a combination of oil, charcoal, and pastel on canvas and a combination of landscape and figures weaving throughout each other.
This new volume in the traditional patterns series features ´´Shunga,´´ a type of Ukiyo-e, which is made with the finest Japanese woodblock prints technique, and portrays the erotic expression of a couple of man and woman with pleasures and pains, and the beauty of their body. This glorious volume features works from the Edo period. Including works by Ukiyo-e artists such as Hishikawa Moronobu, Kitagawa Utamaro, Utagawa Kunisada, Katsushika Hokusai, this Japanese ¿kama sutra¿ manages to be erotic, artistic, and fun all at the same time.
Master Sugoi´s origami normally features classical figures, animals, creatures, and design, but ´´Pornogami´´ shows a new side of his talent. A piece of pornogami folded in the right setting, he discovered, can produce smiles and laughter in a way that no butterfly or bird ever could. Shapes include a variety of erotic body parts, including the amazing 3-D penis. Those who have mastered the technique can produce their own adult objets d´art, but the book´s simple, step-by-step instructions help even the creatively challenged to transform a drab piece of paper into a saucy surprise.
One of the foremost American figurative painters of the twentieth century, it is not surprising that Alice Neel was a humanist-she was fascinated by people. Known for her daringly honest portraits, Neel loved to paint people in all their complexities-to penetrate and reveal their fears and anxieties, how they display defiance and survival. She also loved to paint the unadorned human figure. Her nudes, in particular, explore the body with frankness while celebrating the individuality of each of her subjects, and they exemplify the freedom and courage with which she approached her work and her life. Through her paintings and works on paper, Neel was able to free herself from the expected inhibitions and crippling taboos that were placed on women and focus on the beauty and nuanced complexity of flesh and the human body. In their mastery of form, color, and implied social commentary, her nudes are as relevant today as when they were painted. Alice Neel documents the solo exhibition of the artist´s work at David Zwirner in New York in 2019. Including works that span the 1920s to the 1980s, this presentation focuses primarily on the nude figure- whether male or female, adult or child-and demonstrates how Neel rebelled against and challenged the traditional perceptions of sexuality, motherhood, and beauty in our society. The catalogue includes newly commissioned scholarship by Helen Molesworth and a foreword by Ginny Neel of The Estate of Alice Neel.
