Abstract:

Lifted examines a form of body modification known as suspension, a practice that hangs the human body from hooks pierced through the flesh in various places on the body. The world of suspension becomes accessible as independent practitioners and suspension groups share the history, meanings and beliefs attached to suspension, as well as, discuss the future of this growing practice. Lifted offers a view of suspension from the inside, attempting to demystify this practice through the narratives of those that understand it best, while illuminating the diversity of it's practitioners. Drawing on themes of ritual, performance art, meditation and spiritual transcendence, suspension is a tool with many uses that offers a unique experience for every participant.
