Un Quiet Bodies

Opening reception: Friday, April 24th, 7.00 – 10.00pm

Exhibition runs: April 24th – May 31st, 2015

Un Quiet Bodies delves into the complex realities of the physiology of trauma, self-awareness, and levels of ability impacting one’s capacity to survive in a society designed for the “able-bodied”. Bond’s work emphasizes the relationship between work, leisure and self-care when accounting for physical and mental limitations. Melting Tallowexplores the implications of ability through the lens of colonial and intergenerational trauma and its physical manifestations in the body.

Salon Shop exhibition The Transience of Value featuring work by Lena Tan.
Lena Tan carries forward forgotten traditions into a contemporary society, leaving a trail of increasingly obvious destruction behind it. Hand worked lace, based on the pattern work of Irish Women crocheting for survival through the Great Famine of the mid -19th century, melds with the flotsamof the daily commuter. Repurposed bus tickets and crochet become micro meditations on transit and transformation: permanence fused to transience. Can the invalidated be made valid again through art?
