This exhibition looks at the ways culture, language and failure are interlinked with our bodies.
Through each of Jacob, Fei, Caoife and Nani's works, aggregate processes draw out parallels within our art: its density, texture, repetition, time, materiality, and its connection with our bodies as we make.
For the purpose of this exhibition ‘Body Language’ acknowledges that we are surrounded by cultural-political markers that hold the safety, health, identity and class of our bodies, often outside of our control.
This exhibition opens a space for vulnerable attentiveness with these concerns, with unpredictable works that seek to expose earnest moments essential to understanding the body and its divergence.
This exhibition is part of Kudos Offsite. Kudos Offsite allows UNSW Art & Design students, alumni and emerging artists the opportunity to realise an engaging and experimental arts project. Providing an innovative offsite program Kudos aims to be the bridge between emerging practitioners and the wider arts community.
We acknowledge the Bidjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora Nation and the Ngunnawal people who are the traditional owners of the land Arc AD, Kudos Gallery and AD Space share, create and operate on. We pay our respects to elders, and past, present and acknowledge that this will always be Aboriginal land.
