Jeanne Dunning: Study After Untitled
by Russell Ferguson
Publisher's Description
Jeanne Dunning’s unwavering focus over the past two decades has been the terrain of the human body, in particular the ways in which we perceive and conceive norms of gender, sexuality, and reality itself. Her images-including recent widely circulated work that showed subjects sitting in a pink, pudding-like substance that evoked liquid flesh or liquid body fat-interrogate the boundaries between inside and outside, normal and abnormal, the erotic and the abject. They have made significant contributions to contemporary visual culture. Study After Untitled presents a selective survey of the Chicago artist’s photographic and video works, including among its essays one from Dunning herself, revealing her work anew in the play of intention and hindsight. As Dunning gains international recognition, Study After Untitled broadens her work’s associations and clarifies its well-earned place in the canon and in contemporary art history.
