Not Me, Not That, Not Nothing Either presents the work of eleven contemporary artists employing fragmentation—through both material and subject matter—in painting, drawing, sculpture, and time-based media. Historically associated with Modernist movements, strategies of bodily fragmentation (slicing the body into parts, isolating appendages, and distorting one’s self-image) are reconsidered by queer contemporary artists as a means of exploring their own perceptions of self outside of the cis-heteronormative gaze. Rejecting societal notions of fixedness and individuation, fragmentation in this exhibition serves not as a method of deconstruction but as an additive process in which queer selfhood is malleable, ever-changing, tactile, and connected. The artists in this show forge a queer aesthetic, proposing a world in which the body-in-pieces is in fact the body-as-whole.
