It’s Offal looks at the work of artists who have chosen to explore what lies within. A guttural festivity that triggers questions about who and what we really are, our fears and desires, and what we value in the end.

About

The inner body and its distortions are presented in photographs, films, performances, sculptures and paintings in order to expose, reflect and celebrate the sludge and flow of life.

It’s Offal splices together historical examples including Helen Chadwick’s sensual Meat Abstracts, Tony Morgan's collaborative film, Beefsteak Resurrection and Gina Pane's complex and bloody body actions as well as contemporary paintings, sculptures and video works including including ‘Fluence’ by Fritha Jenkins, a meaty book of paintings by Anna Jung Seo and a performance lecture from Michael Archer.

 

The exhibition plays on opposing ideas of seduction and repulsion, by rejoicing in these base instincts 'It's Offal' hopes to evoke a cathartic freedom and re-engagement with our bodies, in a world where perfect isn’t good enough.
