EMBODIED

Jo Walters

13 Nov 2014 to 23 Nov 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.
