Curatorial Statement

Manmade examines the formation of masculine identities and how they are actualized through the body. We look at the body as a recording device—a mirror that reflects our intentions back at us. Thus, these bodies are anything but accidental; they are constructed. The way we inhabit our bodies changes with age, and passes from naively subconscious youth through more delineated adult expressions of a masculine identity. Consciously or subconsciously, men are made.
