Body Matters / Martha Friedman

Body Matters presents two new series of sculptures by Martha Friedman, a Princeton faculty member who draws inspiration from ancient Egyptian mummification, Greco-Roman portrait busts, nineteenth-century public monuments, and drawings of the brain structure and nerves by the early twentieth-century neuroscientist Santiago Ramón y Cajal. In bringing together these influences, Friedman mines the space between visceral and intellectual experiences of the body to consider the ways in which our physical forms shape our understanding of being human and our desire to transcend those limits. On view through July 10 at Art@Bainbridge. Read more about Friedman in Artnet.
