Figuratively Speaking

Friday 02 February 2018 - Sunday 11 March 2018

Mira Loew, Counter-tension 2016, C-Type Print, Diasec, 40x60cm, Edition of 5.

In Figuratively Speaking, seven artists explore themes of the body as a medium for language across lens-based media.

Looking at form and gesture, the body as a tool for expression, and the historical relation between performance and the camera, the exhibition investigates the ways in which contemporary artists draw on the body as a linguistic and legible device. Whether as archival document, a call to action, a tool for translation, or as a mode of language itself, Figuratively Speaking considers how our bodies communicate without words.

Featuring artists Ross Coulter, Laura Hindmarsh (UK/Australia), MIRA LOEW (UK/Austria), Gabriella Mangano & Silvana Mangano, Mira Oosterweghel, and Eugenia Raskopoulos.

Curated by Laura Lantieri. 

Opening hours:  Weds-Fri 11am-5pm, Sat-Sun 12-5pm

 This project has been supported by a Small Project Grant from City of Yarra.
