Tau Lewis is included in 'Liminal States'
Group exhibition 'Liminal States' explores the body as an inseparable yet separate form. Featuring artists Hanna-Maria Hammari, Agata Ingarden, Cathy Josefowitz, Kyung-Me, Tau Lewis and Maina-Miriam Munsky, the presentations four contemporary and two historical artistic positions trace different topographies of the self and its (post)corporeal manifestations.
Tau Lewis’ sculpture ‘Devil Ray’ is suspended above the floor, its body is a quilted assemblage of textiles and its humanoid face is carved out of plaster. It has a commanding, totemic aura, standing in for a social body rather than an individual. Drawing on the tradition of freedom quilts, Lewis overcomes the idea of portraiture to embody a collective identity.
