Juliette Furio. Veronica Habib. Yang-En Hume. Thomas Quayle
OPENING PREVIEW WITH THE ARTISTS
FRIDAY 6th June 6-8PM
Dismemberment of the body is used as a tool in this exhibition, to explore themes such as voyeurism, the gaze, the objectification of the body, social constructions of gender, taxonomy, isolation and suffering.
The participating artists use dismemberment in both literal and metaphorical ways. Yang-En Hume and Juliette Furio’s physical dismemberment of the human form utilises abject sensibilities, provoking a visceral response in the viewer. They use dismemberment as a means of critiquing archetypal constructs of gender and identity. Veronica Habib’s cut clothing performances, dismember the human form through simultaneously disguising and revealing sections of the body. Thomas Quayle’s quietly disturbing ceramic pieces point to a dismembered humanity, where the disconnection between humans leads to ignoring others’ suffering.
