    This essay considers the status of the image, questions of corporeality, and the ethical dimension of aesthetic practice in the work of the contemporary sculptural artist Marilène Oliver. Drawing on Blanchot’s discussions of the image, Nancy’s analysis of the body, and Levinas’s sense of “escape,” the essay suggests that Oliver’s sculptures expose and challenge contemporary tensions between ethical and bio-political modes of existence.
