Opening of our new exhibition SWEAT
On show from 28.06.2019 – 05.08.2019
The influence of sporty zones as a gym reaches far beyond the spatial. Notions of the idealized body are revolving around us at an accelerating pace due to the virtual dimensions called the Internet and social media – places where we also perform ourselves. These media affect our perceptions of physical aesthetics. How to react if we want to distance ourselves from standard conceptions of the body? How to act when we do not identify with the archetype? What happens if the rules of a game are mixed up?
SWEAT shows work by five emerging artists who scrutinize the power of these realms and contemporary ideas of sculpting the body. They explore how those contested realms define, nurture and fetishize our perception of the body and self, our on- and offline behavior, and narratives of gender in society.
Participating artists are Aurélien Lepetit, Julius Thissen, Rosa Doornenbal, Pip Passchier, Xenia Perek and Jo-Ann With. The exhibition is curated by Léon Kruijswijk.
On the 28th of June we will be celebrating the opening of SWEAT.
