About

FLESH 10-15 July 2014 Flesh. Just the sound of the word is evocative and provocative. For some it conjures thoughts of a juicy steak, served rare, still slightly bloody. For others it brings images of Soho bookshops and red-light windows in Amsterdam. And for the spiritually-minded, there's the mystery of communion and of God made flesh in Jesus. However you approach it, flesh is the bedrock of our very existence as human beings. Without flesh we could not experience the temptations and terrors of the world around us. This stimulating exhibition celebrates the physicality and sensuality of the human body. The artists were invited to submit work which confronts the many meanings of flesh, and challenges socially-imposed taboos and notions of sin and virtue as well as exploring our preconceived notions of what it really means to be made of meat.
