Bodies in Play

‘Bodies in Play’ uses humour, varied scale and movement to examine bodies as gendered and the possibilities for expanding the discourse beyond the gender norms of female/male. The work in the exhibition shifts between objects and images that explore bodies as corporeal, physical and culturally inscribed entities. Mammaphone presents an enlarged breast LP playing on a turntable, the turntable modified to the breast rather than the body modified to the discourse. Impressions taken from the Mammaphone breast LP use colour and compositional space to abstract and draw attention to the surface of our bodies as beautiful and mysterious landscapes of circular patterns and irregular striations.
