Body Art: Narcissism of Eros

Review by:
Harvey Giesbrecht

A dialectical theory of narcissism is proposed, to account for some features of visual art of late modernity. That art is notable for a tendency toward de-realization (abstraction, conceptual de-emphasis on the object—especially the body) on the one hand, and a powerful contemporary counter-tendency towards intense corporality, on the other.

Une théorie dialectique du narcissisme est proposée pour prendre en compte certaines caractéristiques de l'art visuel de la fin de la modernité. Cet art se distingue par une tendance envers la déréalisation (abstraction, désaccentuation conceptuelle de l'objet – surtout le corps) d'une part et une puissante tendance contemporaine opposée vers une corporalité intense d'autre part.
