  • Butter Body Politic, Strange Loop Gallery, New York City, 2013 (video)

    THE BUTTER BODY POLITIC (BBP) IS A POLITIC OF A SOCIAL BODY.

    Butter Body Politic was performed by Jessica Posner at Strange Loop Gallery at 27 Orchard St., NYC on January 30, 2014. It was featured by AM NEW YORK as one of the best free things to do in NYC that weekend.

    Butter Body Politic Manifesto

    Jessica Posner's performance at Strange Loop Gallery is an embodiment of the face of the Butter Body Politic: Butterface. Having always been told she was a pretty face, Butterface obfuscates her bounty as an act of resistance, refusal, and desire. She is a process-product; sculpture-sculptor. Butterface is neither object nor subject.

    "This body is not subject to your power," she says.
