‘The Open Body’ was a one-day performance art program for the Inner West Open Studio Trail, curated by Tom Isaacs and hosted by Scratch Art Space, Marrickville with support from the Inner West Council’s Arts and Culture Grant. The works performed addressed ideas of visibility and representation of the body and explored the role that the body plays in our experience of self and our relationship to others.
