In this collaborative project, Maryam Muliaee (PhD candidate, UB Department of Media Study) and Naila Ansari (MFA candidate, UB Department of Theatre and Dance) use film, dance, and transmedia storytelling to reflect on the history of a lost architecture: The Marble Temple.

Built in 1913 for M&T headquarters, The Marble Temple was demolished in 1959 and its marble columns were partly preserved. Embodied Landscape depicts a tactile relationship between the female body and the bodies of marble stones, suggesting a meditation on the idea of architecture as event.

Embodied Landscape is organized by UB Arts Collaboratory in partnership with UB Art Galleries, UB Production Group and Eleven Twenty Projects.
