Once the Speaker Drawings Kim created during her performance were complete, they became part of the installation of the exhibition. In this video Kim discusses her interest in sound its use in her work as well as her experience as an exhibiting artist in the exhibition What Can a Body Do? which ran at the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery at Haverford College October 26 - December 16, 2012.

Oko za oko (An Eye for an Eye) consists of a set of three large-format color photographs and a video. The photographs and video depict naked men with amputated limbs, accompanied by able-bodied people, who in the staged photographs and in the film “lend” their limbs to the amputated as they stroll, climb stairs or bathe. The naked bodies of the protagonists were assembled by the artist in complex compositions creating bodily hybrids: two-headed men, men with two pairs of arms etc., and at the same time the appearance of new able-bodied organisms in which the “healthy” supply the amputated with substitute limbs. The title of Zmijewski’s work recalls the antique rule of dispensing justice, but the artist is not concerned with the question of revenge but with that of possibilities.

OPENING NIGHT is less than a week away! BUY TICKETS NOW! TUESDAY, NOV 12TH @8! Gear up for visions of resistance against our surveillance-state, corporate-power oriented world. We show the powers that be through the funhouse mirror, where pixel-art rotoscoped animations re-enact the eve of Chelsea Manning’s arrest, mangled Barbies form hilarious tableaus, and trans radical queer legend Flo McGarrell gets a touching eulogy out of footage from an unfinished artistic collaboration. From experimental 3-D technologies to super-8 double projection, these mediums reflect messages of warped pasts and presents.
