The body — expands, appropriates, consumes, absorbs...

the body is a blade (that sharpens by cutting) is a coalescence of three artists (Samira Yamin, Kenneth Yuen, and Charlotte Zhang) who employ the body as a subject and tool to circumvent and cut through, respectively, the violence of representation without protection under systemic oppression. The artists interrogate dangerous narratives surrounding generational violence that permeates contemporary society.
