30458177682_3f351fc400_zTeri Frame lulus sebagai sarjana seni rupa dari the Kansas City Art Institute dan pasca- sarjana dari The Pennsylvania State Univer- sity. Meski aslinya sekolah sebagai keramikus; performance, video, dan seni cetak digital telah menjadi bagian dari karya-karyanya. Ia kerap kali berbolak-balik di antara medium-medium ini. Tema-tema dalam karyanya seringkali mengikutsertakan persoalan kecantikan dan proporsi, genetika, eugenika, rekayasa genetik, identitas, dan operasi estetika. Teri menjelajahi bagaimana kecantikan dan proporsi terhubung dengan penuaan, penyakit, kecacatan, dan ras. Tubuh-tubuh “non-normatif” melalui jela- jah karya, diperlihatkan telah keluar dari alam manusia, dan turun ke tingkatan hewan. Kecacatan dalam bentuk dan permukaan tubuh manusia telah sering termarjinalkan. Mereka yang mengemban tanda-tanda yang sedemikian rupa dijauhkan dari kehidupan masyarakat dan seringkali di-hewan-kan.

Teri Frame received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and her MFA from The Pennsylvania State University. Although she was trained as a ceramist, performance, video, and digital imaging have come into her work, and she continues to move among these genres. Themes within her work include notions of human beauty and proportion, genetics, eugenics, genetic engineering, identity and aesthetic surgery. Teri examines how notions of beauty and proportion relate to aging, disease, disability and race. “Non-normative” bodies have often been shunted from the human realm to that of the animal. Disfigurements in the form and surface of the human body are often marginalized. Those who bear such marks are estranged from public life and are often animalized.
