Antibody Corporation creates performance works incorporating music, movement, and languages both real and invented. This two-part Ten-Year Anniversary exhibition includes PAST on Friday, March 8th, a performance and celebration alongside videos, photos, and objects from prior work; and FUTURE on Sunday, March 10th, a performance that celebrates all that is to come. Antibody is a body in opposition to the body. The Antibody moves against, against, against, until it has come full circle; and then it laughs.
Karl Icon founded Antibody Corporation in 2009 in the aftermath of the Great Recession.
He left a lucrative career in investment banking to pursue an interest in experimental dance.
Karl succumbed to his own demons in 2018.
This story no longer belongs to him.
The entity lives on.
ANTIBODY CORPORATION: TEN YEARS
