About the Body


Re-writing the Body-towards the reading room- 2001-on-going

A project intended to build a collaboratively-authored "library" of book works about female embodiment, Re-Writing... involves workshops with women and girls accross the continent and site specific installations of the evolving "reading room" in workshop locations.

New Readings in Female Anatomy-1994-2001

A major installation of image, text, objects, sound and bookworks, New Readings... was the culmination of six years of Hall's speculative work around the construction of the female body. Mounted by Carleton University Art Gallery in partnership with The Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador, and accompanied by a hard-cover catalogue, this body of work in foundational to Hall's ongoing preoccupations with embodiment, with western science, and with female "voice".

Miscellaneous Body Works- 1992-ongoing

Hall's studio-based practice serves both as conceptual research and material experimentation- one investigation leading to another, one path abandonned in favor of another. The work represented here, while never exhibited in public, makes visible both products and processes which advanced her thinking as well as her "making". For details, click the image.
