BODY WORKS is the title of the summer intervention at the State Art Gallery in Sopot — a selection of works by several dozen artists.


The exhibition and series of events - confronting a number of practices and formats - is dedicated to the human body, placed in various contexts related to censorship and politics among others. The view of the body in the era of blurring boundaries between public and private realms has become an essential tool for flaunting the need for acceptance, equal rights and freedom, including artistic creation. The ease of sharing that has been offered by social media works in two directions, and the changing reality imposes on the performances of the bodies still different interpretations, often radical, conditioned politically and ideologically. Crossing the limits of intimacy puts the body under the pillory of opinions and judgments. Intervention in State Art Gallery follows up one of the chapters of Somewhere in Between. Contemporary Art Scenes in Europe at BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels (2018). The exhibition, through its open format and place, also refers to the individual presentation of Gosia Golińska's work entitled M/sea at State Art Gallery in Sopot (2017), which took the form of a performative winter camp, to which the artist invited the audience.
