ANXIOUS BODIES FOR UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENTS
Participating Artists: Mathieu Briand, Deanne Butterworth, Kate Daw, Kuba Dorabialski, Jason Maling and Renny Kodgers.
Curated by Mark Feary
Exhibition Dates: 2-5 August 2018
Location: Melbourne Art Fair, Gertrude Contemporary Project Room (Vault Hall), Southbank Arts Precinct, Melbourne
Presenting new, recent and context specific works of sculpture, performance, video and robotics, Anxious Bodies for Unstable Environments will create an animated and dynamic environment that offers both an embodiment of anxiety, but also strategies for its alleviation. Instead of focusing on the issues that may be the cause of our fears and apprehensions, Anxious Bodies for Unstable Environments casts a lens on the effects – physical, mental and emotional – of these volatile times on the individual and collective psyche.
