Focusing on our interactions with visual art as posthuman performance, this piece explores how Jane Bennett’s “vibrant materiality” moves us into a radical relationality with art and processes of grief. Performance studies’ enduring plumb into the deep ecology of body-page-body-stage makes us particularly equipped to see what else we might know of being in semantic-somatic multimatter knowing.
