The wheel bears no resemblance to a leg is an intricate case study of participation and coproduction between an artist and a specific community. Mexican artist Erick Meyenberg (b. 1980) proposes a theatrical exploration of the various dimensions of bio-power in everyday life, a notion that defines how violence and control is exerted on the physical bodies and lives of people. His project condenses a range of exploratory methodologies and interdisciplinary interactions developed at the arts residency space Casa Gallina (Mexico City), which functions as the sixth edition of the public art project, InSite. The exhibition deconstructs this process through the artifacts of making, turning from site and social relations to video and sound artwork.
