During this time of remoteness, social distancing and isolation, our corporeal relationship to the world, and to one another, is much altered. This exhibition seeks to look at the ways in which artists from the 20th and 21st centuries have approached representation of the body over the past 50 years, addressing and redressing the corporeal self in landscapes and spaces that ask us to question how we engage with and fit into those spaces in person and in the digital realm.
