hold my hand by the tail speaks about the desire be transported beyond the limited corporeal body, to imagine human physicality as something more cinematic.

About

In our upcoming exhibition (July 5th – 28th 2019), hold my hand by the tailLaila Majid and Louis Blue Newbynegotiate the material boundaries posed to us by flesh.

Elements such as latex and silicon take precedence in the show. As materials, they are both evocative and functional, fetish-wear and protheses; they allow us to create new flesh, to expand our boundaries both physically and sensuously. When applied, this new flesh pushes us beyond our realities and our perceived capabilities.

Taking these materials as a starting point, in hold my hand by the tail Majid and Newby speak about the desire to move past biological boundaries: the desire to be transported beyond the limitations of our corporeal bodies, and to imagine our physicality as something more cinematic in form.
