Linda Carreiro is a visual artist, researcher, and writer. Her work explores the inextricable relationship of language to the body, revealing tactile qualities of printed text as a reminder of its derivation from the root word texere, meaning tissue or texture. Drawing upon a long-standing interest in the representation of the anatomized body, and informed by movement studies, reading theory and post-structuralism, text is exposed as sensuous and somatic through its formation and reception. The artist uses physicalized applications on a variety of fissured surfaces to convey the shifting, malleable, and performative aspects of language.
