Spring Exhibition 2021: From Head to Toe

The exhibition brings together six works of art from last year dealing with the experience of the human body in the broadest sense. Our planet has been described as a spaceship on which humankind is flying through space, so we could think of our bodies as vessels of flesh in which our consciousness is destined to move on its path. Although we can think of bodies as useful machines, they differ from other vehicles precisely in that we cannot choose them by colour, body type or wheel power. They are precisely as slender, stocky, rosy or angular as they are, no more and no less. This premise feels wonderful and devastating at the same time, and coping with it can be playfully easy for some and cause endless anxiety for others.
