Bodily Objects

17 July 2020 until 31 August 2020
Arusha Gallery, 13A Dundas Street

In an extension of the original online exhibition, curated by Philomena Epps at Richard Saltoun Gallery, ​Bodily Objects brings together a selection of work by seven feminist artists – Helena Almeida (1934-2018), Rose English, Renate Bertlmann, Helen Chadwick (1953-1996), Judy Chicago, Alexis Hunter (1948-2014) and Carolee Schneemann (1939-2019) – exploring ideas of surrealism, sexuality, and subversion.

“Through avant-garde performance, photography, collage, and sculpture, each artist developed unique and experimental ways in which to represent embodiment, often conflating the corporeal with the material, through blurring or substituting the body with objects, food, and flora. Whether libidinous, absurd, or menacing, the sustained tone is one of wry humour and satire, situated in resistance to the representation of women typified by the crude male gaze.” – Philomena Epps, May 2020
