Eccentric Limbs is an exhibition of new work by the artist Andrew Gannon.

Motivated by the decision to centre disability, this new work has focused on the visibility of and stigmas around his own congenital limb difference.

Eccentric Limbs is a series of works comprising plaster casts of the artist’s arm to which different materials have been added to create absurd, useless things which challenge ideas of what a disability object might be. What is a prosthesis if it is neither functional nor cosmetic? These objects are made quickly, on the artist’s body, using perceived absence as the site of production to create works that unpick his experience of limb difference and societal attitudes towards disability; once taken off, these innately performative objects become sculpture, which in turn refer to the body in absence.
