In ReBirth, the body is used, bruised, and scratched - yet remains strong. The dialogue it establishes points out the historical use and traces of human bodies in the process and products of architectural construction. It interweaves theoretical references, conceptual aspirations and the artists' separate practices, continuing concepts explored in Roberta Lima's work and in Fearghus O'Conchuir's ongoing live and video work on the relationship between bodies and architecture in urban contexts. The installation was composed of the concrete sculpture, videos, photographs, and various performance objects. "Imprints" is a video in which Lima and O'Conchuir used their bodies to transform and shape the wet concrete using gestures of falling, dropping, dragging, and crashing. During this part Lima also made a series of photographs using self-timer which lead her from the static-broken-body position into movements of standing up and walking away from the mold.
