Danica Drago and Victoria Guy resist the stereotypical and harmful assumptions and presumptions made about the body, personhood and lived experience. Their works in ceramics, glass and mixed-media reflect upon the body as site, inspiration and the ultimate instrument to mediate meaning through making. Drago and Guy celebrate material intent and process as the language to express embodied knowledge.
