Martha Friedman Art@Bainbridge
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 understandings of being human. See the exhibition
at Art@Bainbridge, on view through Sunday, July 10.
