What makes a body beautiful or ugly? Where have our hierarchies and judgements about the body come from? “Body / Play / Politics” presents a selection of contemporary works of art which explore the notion of “the body,” physically, spiritually, individually and collectively. This sometimes poetic, sometimes humorous exhibition provokes visitors to consider the assumptions and expectations we make about bodies, such as skin color, ethnicity and gender, in societies all around the world.
The exhibition features the work of six diverse artists: Yinka Shonibare MBE, Yee I-Lann, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, UuDam Tran Nguyen, Ishikawa Ryuichi and Tamura Yuichiro, hailing from Europe/Africa, Southeast Asia and Japan respectively.
