Various personalities + complementary notions in A Screen of Flesh at COMA, May 26 – Jun 23

, 24 May 2017

The A Screen of Flesh group exhibition at Sydney’s COMA gallery, opening May 26 and running to June 23.

The show features work by Nicholas CheveldaveWill CookeTschabalala Self and Athena Papadopoulos and is defined by the press release as “an exploration of complementary notions: attitudes towards the human body as a physical object and organism, and the various personalities and lives that inhabit the flesh.”

Exploring subject matter from stereotype, media, relationships and emotion, the works deal with the complexity of the body itself and how it is mediated in ‘contemporary thought.’ The exhibition is put on in conversation with Dominik Mersch Gallery, who are showing work by Meng-Yu Yan in Occulere and Lucas Davidson in I am a Strange Loop.
