Occupy movement: The problem with having a body / is that it always needs to be somewhere at The Approach, Apr 6 – May 14

6 April 2017

The problem with having a body / is that it always needs to be somewhere group exhibition is on at London’s The Approach, opening April 6 and running to May 14.

Curated by Nora Heidorn, the show includes work by artists across generations including Alexandra BirckenHeidi Bucher, Kiki Kogelnik, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Paul Maheke, B. Ingrid Olson, Zilia Sánchez and Ana Vieira

Focusing on performance and spatiality through physical labour and movement, the exhibition explores “the way the female body occupies and structures its surrounding space” through a variety of media including video, photo, textiles, latex, mirrors and more. Some of the works will “themselves perform: posing for pleasure, they seem self-aware of their capacity to incite desire and of their status as beautiful objects in the gallery, offered up to the audience for inspection.”

See The Approach website for details.**
