Multimedia all female group exhibition exploring the female form, stereotypes and technology.


Exquisite Corpse explores female form and stereotypes from the perspective of 11 female artists. Through video, painting, performance and illustration, the exhibition also considers the potential of contemporary technology as a tool to examine female self-identity and evaluates the impact that it has upon constructs of ‘femininity’.

Artist Poppy Jackson explores the female body as an autonomous zone and has produced a new performance work commissioned by Fuse Art Space. Jackson will also be exhibiting a series of paintings. Toronto based Rupi Kaur found notoriety as the poet who critiqued the social media site Instagram earlier this year with her period. series, and these photographs feature in the show. Delicate and charged illustrations from Sue Williams draw the viewer into a world of provocative sexual politics.

“The online visual landscape pits females alongside an ever present dialogue of pornography”, comments curator and artist Sarah Faraday. “Exquisite Corpse presents an array of female artists using both online and material forms for creativity, empowerment, and subversion, whilst reclaiming control of the representation of their bodies”.

The exhibition also includes work by international artists from across Austria, Russia, UK and US including Julia Kim Smith, Anastasia Vepreva, Sarah Faraday, Evelin Stermitz, Kate Durbin, Lacie Garnes, Faith Holland and Sheena Patel.

Exquisite Corpse is accompanied by a concert series including performances by Puce Mary, Kyoka and Cooly G.
