    Performance: Leslie Dick’s “Boundary Lines” & PDAs by CamLab

    Leslie Dick presents her text/image piece on the mother’s idealization of the body of the child. In honor of X-TRA’s 15th Anniversary, CamLab will present fifteen PDAs (public displays of affection) from the duo’s archive. Recorded over several months in and around Los Angeles, the PDAs now function as scores designed for spontaneous or premeditated performance.

    CamLab is an artists’ collaboration between Anna Mayer and Jemima Wyman initiated in 2005 at California Institute of the Arts, Valencia. Mayer and Wyman are united by a common interest in phenomena such as scopophilia (the sexual pleasure derived from looking at objects), embodied knowledge, and the destabilization of a singular subjectivity.
