All the Flesh of His Body at Sarah Doyle Gallery
in Providence, Rhode Island now through March 22nd
Bull by Day, Man by Night by Sarah Bliss. 15" x 22" Archival pigment print, 2013.
otions of anatomy, figure and frame are alive pumping through an exhibition at Brown University
. Sarah Doyle Gallery
is currently showing All the Flesh of His Body
, a solo exhibition of sound, video and photographic work by artist Sarah Bliss
. Created during her stay on the coast of southwest County Kerry, Ireland, the work in Bliss
' exhibition investigates both the body and language as sites of creation, power and loss. Her sound and video pieces combine the literary, linguistic and aural Irish landscape, drawing from present-day dialogue, the 1st century pre-Christian epic Táin Bó Cúailgne and St. Patrick's 5th century Confessio
. The video You Leave Here
exposes the impenetrable link between voice and body. It explores scenarios of distress, relocation and the rupture of language. Perhaps the most enticing part of Bliss
' show is her photographic work, a photo-video project featuring scenes of a man encased by, wrestling with and romancing the skin of another animal. These scenes are filmed and then projected onto sculptural forms molded from rawhide created by sculptor Rosalyn Driscoll
. These projected images are then photographed, creating a compromise between worlds of delirious dreams and supposed realities that demonstrates the impermanent nature of physicality, something so often considered stoic. All the Flesh of His Body
is on view now through Friday, March 22nd
at Sarah Doyle Gallery
. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.

Multi-media artworks focus on the power of keys to unlock nothing less than the human code. A dynamic interplay of paint, encaustic, photography, and
