Henrique J. Paris

My Ontological Corporeality

Consists of a bedside table, public remains and a series of images collected from self-documented footage: depicting the body in transit, affective gestures and domesticity.

Henrique contemplates multiple forms of mobility and how these manifest in everyday life through materiality and embodied knowledges; the body in movement becoming a monument.  

In the words of Greg Tate “the embodied weaponry of self-styled Black physicality”, could refer to corporeality as a starting point to question the complex relationship between a body and the architecture surrounding it; what gets to inhabit what?
