Claire Tabouret: I am spacious, singing flesh presents a new critical reading of key dimensions of the artist’s work in a remarkable survey exhibition curated by Kathryn Weir that explores multiple transformations: of self, other, collective identities, struggle, release, and refuge. A powerful and unexpected dialogue is also created with several devotional objects drawn from the Italian context, invoking an ambivalent threshold in Tabouret’s practice, a portal into multiple temporalities and subjectivities through which to consider alternative relationships amongst human beings, and between human beings and their environment, in communication with the supernatural in the face of ecological and social crises.
