Artist list

Elene Usdin, Benjamin Lignel
Elene Usdin (photographer) and Benjamin Lignel (designer) share a sustained interest in the body - variously supine or dolled up - and will exhibit the results of their most recent deliberations on the matter. The show will feature all sorts of bodies - rearranged by one, adorned by the other - put on display to plot a course between use and representation, gender and identity, desire and expectancy.
While Plan A is to dull your uncommonly sharp mind with beverage to better pry open your wallet, Plan B means to impress you with the authors’ creative outpourings, and show you stuff, for without you, it would all be quite meaningless. 
 

Remarks

This exhibition was produced with the support of PICTO
