Artists include: Chris Pilling, David Shackleton, Franzi Ehmer, Peter Rapp, Tommy Pilling, Tony Savas and Zoey Zhao.
The artists in Human revisit and update classical traditions of visual art, while drawing upon representations of the human body in contemporary culture. Remixing past and present, they transform that most familiar form – our species – in ways that surprise, unsettle and engage us.
The exhibition showcases varied artistic approaches and mediums, from intricate ink drawings, to street photography, etchings and oil paintings.
Bringing together new work by seven artists from around the globe, the show looks at themes including life, death, sexuality and humour. Importantly, it also explores the inner psychological complexity that lies within all of us, and the ways it is manifested in the world around us.
Opening on Thursday 3rd of September from 7.00 as part of the First Thursdays Open Until Late organized by WhiteChapel Gallery.
