Lucy and Bart - Grow on you

Details

Lucy and Bart

Lucy and Bart are a collaborative pair working on body extensions and architectures using a varety of materials, 'evolution' uses balloons and natural cloured tights to create body modifications giving the effect of a deformed spine and over exaggerated muscular structures.Whereas the 'grow on me ' series involves appying substances directly onto the boddy such as foam and pompoms to create the effect that a sbstance is naturally growing from the skin. I decided to research Lucy and bart as part of our Reveal project as we are focusing on body extensions and their use of material is quite accessible and inspiring.

Matthew Barney's Aimee Mullins: Intimacy, between me and the ground there was nothing

An image found in the Prosthetic impulses book, it showed body extensions in the form of prosthetic legs, this one depicts an intimate scene between two people with prosthetic limbs. I believe the title references to the lack of feeling or intimacy between an amputee and the ground after loosing ons legs..

Aimee Mullins

Aimee first received worldwide media attention as an athlete. Born without fibulae in both legs, Aimee's medical prognosis was discouraging; she was told she would never walk, and would likely spend the rest of her life using a wheelchair. In an attempt for an outside chance at increased mobility, doctors amputated both her legs below the knee on her first birthday. The decision paid off. By age two, she had learned to walk on prosthetic legs, and spent her childhood doing the usual athletic activities of her peers: swimming, biking, softball, soccer, and skiing, always alongside “able-bodies” kids.

Bauhaus Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet 1922

This particular performance and costumes reminded me of what i was creating this week and in the table frame of movement i was using hula hoops and extravagant arms, I came accross bauhaus and their work seemed similar to my ideas, i took some insspiration from this and researched them more. The images i have collected are from a Ballet created by Oskar Schlemmer of Bauhaus, the costumes are vibrant and playful and not the traditional attire for ballet. I enjoy this controversy and how every costume appears to be different and surreal in its own way.
