“This is a show about that lateral, first person perspective; it is about the making flat of something fleshy and the making subject of sight through touch.” – Carmen Winant

06_Marcin-Dudek-Wara-2017
Marcin Dudek’s exhibition The Crowd Man combines an autobiographical narrative with a statement about crowd psychology, aggression and violence. These two elements remain crucial for the artist’s questions about how violence and aggression affect the relationships between people and what mechanisms trigger them.

Bianca Bondi
Bianca Bondi nourrit son travail de sciences naturelles et d’histoires, de culture religieuse, ésotérique ou magique. Avec une approche multidisciplinaire souvent spécifique au site, sa pratique implique l’activation d’objets. Les matériaux sont choisis pour leur potentiel de transformation ou leurs propriétés intrinsèques. En résulte des surfaces étranges et nouvelles.

altblog – Gabriele Beveridge
Gabriele Beveridge’s materials frequently derive from sites of commerce, particularly those where we prepare and process our bodies, or more accurately where we pay others to perform labour on our surfaces. Display and presentation are persistent themes throughout the practice. Beveridge includes found photographic imagery, cropped posters and promotional material found in hair and nail salons, alongside photograms which are a new addition to the artist’s lexicon.
