Not Quite Other, Not Quite the Same (2014)

International conference GENDER, BODY, HEALTH – IN THE ANTHROPOCENE, Uppsala University, Sweden

Life size latex body parts

Installation in conference room throughout the conference

A body copy (or Buddy Copy recalling Haraway’s Companion Species). A body without organs (Deleuze) in the midst of the conference participants effecting and affecting the traditional conference set-up. An indetermined Other, coming into being by joining the conference assemblage. An “inappropriate(d) other” (Trinh T Minh-ha), capable of resisting appropriation and of recognizing and negotiating her situations, including her own subjectivity/identity. Refusing to behave correctly.
