Time Is the Thing a Body Moves Through

Time Is the Thing a Body Moves Through

How do the bodies we inhabit affect our relationship with art? How does art affect our relationship to our bodies? T Fleischmann uses Felix Gonzáles-Torres's artworks—piles of candy, stacks of paper, puzzles—as a path through questions of love and loss, violence and rejuvenation, gender and sexuality. From the back porches of Buffalo, to the galleries of New York and L.A.,...

Time Is the Thing a Body Moves Through Reviews

  • Oliver Baez Bendorf
    "I know it's not that simple, tit for tap, but I don't want to give any more of my touch to language. I just want language to generate more touch." A book about Felix Gonzalez-Torres, ice, and sex, but also coming into one's body and how or why to live and love "uninscribed," as a writer. I read thi...
  • Megan
    Per its title, it's no surprise that this book offers an embodied movement through time -- and yet it resists narrative fixity. Fleischmann brings to it a great deal of respect for experience, change, motion, difference, space--and love, via complex intimacies that bloom and retreat and defy categor...

    I think this is the first book I truly loved in 2019. It's such a wonderfully built essay/book, circling and weaving, always on the move. Mixing criticism & autobiography, it reads similarly to Maggie Nelson, and anyone who liked Bluets or The Argonauts should probably read this (especially because ...

    Not my cup of tea. Not fair to review a work on a subject I know nothing about. But I will rate the book as OK even though it was not....
  • Leo Robertson
    I bought this thinking, as per the description, it would have a lot to do with Felix Gonzales-Torres' work. I was excited for a contemporary take on it.I first encountered Felix Gonzales-Torres' work in the Astrup Fearnley gallery in Oslo. Untitled (Blue Placebo) was on display. The piece, for those...
  • ☘Misericordia☘ ~ The Serendipity Aegis ~  ⚡ϟ⚡ϟ⚡⛈ ✺❂❤❣
    Not too interesting. Not too good writing.Not too medically informed.Not too healthy a relationship with oneself portrayed. The main protagonist is seriously at odds with their body, looks, sex, life, people... many things. I don't think their main issue was their sex or whatever. This protagonist c...
