Gabriel Acevedo Velarde Miguel Aguirre Philip Newcombe Harold Offeh curated by Nathan Jenkins We receive it, we feel it, we embody it. Receive, feel, embody. The reading of an artwork is a multifaceted one, incorporating voluminous layers of referencing. In the percept of object, how intrinsic is the maker's own life to our reading? Our reading rings true with empathy. We attach to biographical stories by our own experiences, our memory. The imagination is superb at filling in gaps, and functions through an anthropophagic alchemy of imagining and knowledge. Building on existing images; eating, digesting and assimilating them, to form a new hybridisation. Biopic provides a critical analysis of the construction of character, biography and narrative. The ever incompleted character of being. Determined to break down the complexity of biography construction to its elements, it illustrates an economical narrative device. The exhibition brings together artists that question this fragile fabrication.
