'Perceptions of the Figurative' explores the meaning behind forms, predominantly of the human body. Approached by two different perspectives, this exhibition highlights the contrast between the fragility of the architecture of our bodies and the social effect of their natural beauty.
The first, tackles the physical aspects of pain, deformation and renewing tissues; scars and wrinkles that indicate experiences and passage of time, as well as the confrontation with the idea of mortality.
The second, embraces the impact of the figure in our social environment through movement and body language; nudity, sexuality and needs of pleasure; and also the way each one's appearance affects the relationships in their personal lives.
The resultant collection of artworks is set as a platform where both poles can engage; diminishing imperfections and insecurities while inviting the viewers to appreciate the unique structure of their own existence.
Organisers: Constantine Anjulatos and Bashar Ali.
