“Body of Truth” profiles four unique female artists exploring complex personal and universal themes. Marina Abramović pushes through physical pain to attain freedom. Shirin Neshat works with the female body both as a sensual entity and a political space. Sigalit Landau uses her art to heal inner wounds. Katharina Sieverding examines the artist’s duty to question ideas of national identity. Mining their personal histories for inspiration, these women create challenging works of vulnerability and strength.
