This exhibition realises the myriad ways the term 'body' can be used. The idea is to contextualize individual interpretations of what body is, bodies are and what to be bodied means. It's an exploration of the body in human form, its travels and interactions with the spaces it travels to. The body is looked at as racialized, sexualised, gendered and nationalised among others. More importantly, there is a play on the idea of the body being a collection. A collection of what though? There are a thousand possibilities. Bodies are also collectors; collectors of things, knowledge, memory and experience.
