Female Physicality in the Postmodern Era

Exhibition by Catharina Burman Called Corpus at the Centro Cultural Borges in Buenos Aires, Argentina
This installation is an exhibit from Catharina Burman's exposition "Corpus". The exhibition showed various parchment paper bodies and photographs representing an intimate female world. The woman's body, its meaning and impression are recurring themes in her art work. Burman is a Colombian artist that currently lives and works in Buenos Aires. The installation has been exhibited in Bogotá at the University of Salamanca (2005) and in Buenos Aires at the Centro Cultural Borges (2008).

The silhouettes would look really neat in a low light situation.

A fascinating post! I would like to see this in person. It looks like they are all tied together which may also be a statement about how the fate of one woman affects the fate of all women. Maybe?

Have a great weekend!

Wonderful post! I think it's amazing you were allowed to take a photo of it. Museum curators have made me erase photos I've taken of art.
