Pre-Human, Post-Human, Inhuman

 

About the Installation
January’s Window Project presents Teri Frame performing Pre-Human, Post-Human, Inhuman – a series that employs raw clay masks as a means for altering the human body. The piece addresses changing human bodies in six acts entitled Simians, Early Humans, Hybrids, Proportions, Races, and Post-humans, respectively. It is not a didactic or chronological enactment of the evolution of the human body, but rather an acknowledgment of the ways in which our notions of bodies have migrated throughout time and have been manifested in the arts and sciences.

About the Artist
Teri Frame received a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2005 and an MFA from The Pennsylvania State University in 2008. The human body has continuously been the center of her interest and this is made evident in her scholarly research and studio practice. Although she was trained as a ceramicist, art historian, and photographer, performance art and video have come into her work and she continues to move between these fields. Frame has exhibited, lectured, and taught throughout the United States, Canada, and South Korea. She has received numerous grants and awards, and was twice bestowed the Kenneth R. Ferguson merit scholarship. Her six-act performance and video series entitled Pre-human, Post Human, Inhuman, was recently exhibited at NCECA’s 2011 Project Space in Tampa, Florida. Frame is currently a resident artist at the Interlochen Arts Academy Boarding High school where she instructs Ceramics, Contemporary Practices, and New Genres.
