    The second in the Human Stories series, the exhibition features a study of body image and anatomy through contemporary photography, film and digital media from a collective of artists. Free to view from 13th October – 12th November 2017.

    The politics of beauty and identity has long been debated as part of explorations of gender, race and the image of the self. The Body Issue welcomes an exciting selection of contemporary photographers, filmmakers and animators to map out this exploration via a series of images that dissect fictional cosmetic rituals as well as exploring the anatomy capturing the subtle blemishes, nuances and imperfections that make us all individual.

    Featuring contemporary photography collections, video doodles and a selection of newly commissioned work, The Body Issue will knit together the themes of intersecting identities, race, and objectification of self.

    Pieces such as Twin Puzzles by Alma Haser, explores the self-identification and biology of identical twins through sets of photographs turned into jigsaw puzzles. By mixing the pieces of the puzzle, swapping eyes, lips and other unique features, the portraits become a pair of eerily unrecognisable portraits; no longer seen as completely identical, they are unique.

    Continuing the investigation into how we exist as individuals and in crowds, Alex Reuben’s Routes explores the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina through dance and music of the American Deep South. The film offers a unique glimpse of lesser-known forms of American culture, exploring the balance between a single person and community.
