EMBODIED
JO WALTERS

Opens Thursday, 13th November 2014
Ends Sunday, 23rd November 2014

 "Embodied" looks at the human body through the lens of social, historical and economic context and considers the way populations over time have projected their collective anxieties regarding status and identity onto the body.

The artist takes these concerns and makes visible their transcription in a series of assemblage and other mixed media works, elevating in the process human corporeality, taking it's inherent vulnerability towards a philosophical resolution which evokes both humor and transcendence.
