CONTESTABLE BODIES – ALTERNATE ANATOMICAL ARCHITECTURES
3 November 2018 - 27 January 2019 Main Gallery
Cutting-edge performance artist, Stelarc, provides us with a wider and deeper understanding of the profound limitations of the human body and of the possibility of alternate anatomical architectures. In this age of body hacking, gene mapping, prosthetic augmentation, organ swapping, face transplants, synthetic skin & chimeras what it means to be a body, what it means to be human and what generates aliveness and agency becomes problematic.
Take a look at Stelarc’s website for further information on his work.
