"Just having a body is a daily comedy." Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER

In Amy Sillman’s 2015 text, “Shit Happens: Notes on Awkwardness,” the artist writes, “We are trying to surprise ourselves, and that is hard to do. I think it is a kind of metabolism that drives me to change and change and change my forms, searching rather earnestly for something I don’t quite know already, a kind of questioning machine, endlessly discontent. I would say that form is the shape of my discontent, and that what interests me is how form can match that feeling or condition—of funny, homely, lonely, ill-fitting, strange, clumsy things that feel right. In other words, a form that tries to find itself outside of what is already OK. Awkwardness is the name I would give this quality, this thing that is both familiar and unfamiliar.” Featured excerpt and this image from the Some Pink Drawings series (2015-16) are reproduced from Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER, new from Dancing Foxes/Portikus.
