ART: “Corinne May Botz is a photographer known for her disquieting images of domesticity. While undoubtedly spooky in their own right, Botz's photographs of crime scene miniatures, haunted houses, and the homes of agoraphobic recluses comment on the social marginalization of women. Works from her series The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, look like perverse mashups of Hans Bellmer's dolls and Laurie Simmons's miniatures. In fact, they are photographs of crime scene reconstructions by Frances Glessner Lee, a woman who broke the mold of the 1950s housewife to become a prominent criminalist. By focusing on women and their anxious relationship to domestic spaces, Botz suggests that the home can be a hell as well as a haven. Botz's work has been exhibited around the world, including shows at Wurttembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart, Germany, Bellwether Gallery in New York, and The Center for Contemporary Art, Torun, Poland.”

REDCAT: Following the publication of A Thousand Plateaus, a work that marked a highpoint in his creative partnership with Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari began working on a screenplay for a science-fiction film, Un amour d’UIQ. This script, which preoccupied Guattari’s attention for seven years, represented a blueprint for a subversive popular cinema through an imagined hyper-intelligent infra-cellular life substance—“UIQ” (Universe Infra-quark)—capable of controlling global communications networks and plugging into the “desiring machines” of a community of squatters. After discovering the unpublished script, Paris-based artists and filmmakers Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson initiated a multiform research project that culminates in their film essay In Search of UIQ, which takes on Guattari’s central quandary: how to give shape to a bodiless entity, seemingly without spatial or temporal limits.
