(First, I am sorry to be late and to only be posting in response to prompts 2 and 3.) My project is a video exploration my own selfhood vis-a-vis my body, my mental illness, my sexuality. Using the frame of Viegener’s lists, I will explore the phenomenology of embodiment using the tools of performance as well as textual research. I will create a video in 25 segments that focuses on my relationship to my physical body, depression, anxiety, sex, menstruation. Through this examination of lived embodiment, I will reckon with my feelings of alienation, rationality, shame, pure joy, pride, physical pain, jealousy, sexiness. Through the process of making a video, I will identify what my own selfhood means and how it functions. I will show that the self is multiplicitous, out of reach, fractured, and yet cohesive. I see my video as a challenge to hegemonic patriarchy in that I will center and explore my body in an uncommon way. My sources and references include visual and performing artists (some nsfw; all links open in a new tab) Abramovic, Ann Liv Young, Schneemann, Pinar Yolacan, Emin, Acconci, and theorists Merleau-Ponty, Butler, Puar, Husserl, Alexander.
