Nat Pyper: Am I More Language or Am I More Body?

Friday, November 1, 2019 – Sunday, December 15, 2019
Organized by Zach Hill
Presented in Black Box as part of 4th Wall film/video programming


Am I More Language or Am I More Body? is a solo screening of videos by Nat Pyper, organized by Zach Hill and presented as part of Vox Populi’s ongoing 4th Wall series dedicated to showcasing new and experimental film/video work by emerging artists.

Performance, text, and voice are enacted throughout this collection of work to tangle human form and language. Pyper nods at public service announcements and at home workout or dance videos to generate dense informative shorts. Each performers’ garment features a phrase such as “Collective Action is Militant Optimism”, “Feeling You Feeling Me”, or “Am I Making Sense to You?” while spoken directives invite the viewer into the activity.These works examine non-normative ways of relating to ourselves and the daily work of ending white supremacy.

In addition to this screening a selection of the artist’s zines and other print based projects will be on display with a collaborative single-channel video from the 2018 group exhibition An Image Going to Work.


Nat Pyper (Chicago, IL) is an alphabet artist. In their work and writing, they use language as a sieve and they push the body through it. They maintain an ongoing research practice on queer anarcho-punk zines of the late 80s and early 90s. They are a 2018 graduate of the Yale School of Art.
