About the Exhibit

Shimmy-Shimmy-Plop-Plop is an exhibition longing for bodies without limits, free from disease and uncertainty. By embracing fragmented and evolving figures, Jamie-Lee Girodat maneuvers narratives informed by the potential relief of biomedical innovations. Yet, navigating the hype, benefits, and ethical impacts of these developments can be challenging; and for many, access is out of reach.

Through grimy yet playful spurts and spasms, ambiguous forms transpose and bewilder the hierarchal elements of the material body. Between unease, intrigue and humor, the work welcomes peculiar sights of throbbing bunions and wobbling dances to transgress boundaries and reimagine medical realities.

This exhibition is the final visual presentation for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking.
