SOUTH BEND — The exhibit “Body, Mind, Spirit: Embodiments in Time” continues through Feb. 25 in the Moreau Art Galleries at Saint Mary’s College.
In “Body, Mind, Spirit,” Chicago-based artists Kirsten Leenaars and Whitney Bradshaw each show individual projects and their collaborative project: “Revelations From the Archive,” which mines the Saint Mary’s archive for representations of belonging, community, empowerment and activism.
Bradshaw’s “OUTCRY” features images of women photographed mid-scream after group gatherings at her home where the attendees practice speaking up and out for themselves and connect with one another.
Leenaars worked with former and current Saint Mary’s students to create a multi-channel video work titled “We Are Not All That Is Possible (Portraits).” Leenaars invited them to consider what a culture of belonging looks like and what this would mean to them.
“Revelations” questions what these images and documents represent and subsequently what the absences in the archive reveal about what it means to be a student at Saint Mary’s. Through this research they try to make connections to the discussions that are happening right now, at campus and in society at large.
The public lecture originally schedule for Jan. 25 has been switched to a virtual presentation, and the opening reception afterward has been canceled because of COVID concerns.
