Loin des yeux près du corps. Entre théorie et création is a collection of essays on the current output of women makers in a variety of disciplines. The first section of the book focuses on the pieces presented in the exhibition Loin des yeux près du corps. They render sensitive experiences that require more than vision to be seen. The second section assembles writings about the intimate connections between theory and creation in the work of women artists, authors, historians and thinkers. Starting from the premise that lived spaces are inseparable from spaces devoted to thinking and making, the book presents practices invested in critical knowledge production on our ways of thinking and making. This grouping of texts and artworks shows the degree to which body and spirit coalesce through the affirmation of an identity that requires perpetual reconsideration.
