The tailbone is a hidden remnant of human evolution, tying us to the nudity of the crawling animal.
The exhibition explores the play between human and non-human, sense and non-sense, as well as past and future. In the use of animated visual effects transporting us to an otherworldly dimension, or in the playful debasement of familiar historical figures, re-imagined fragments and expansions upon animal and human existence will temporarily cohabit.
Setting the scene within a former nightclub, artworks will act as characters re-enchanting the mythical bacchanalian scenery of The Artesian Well, adding another layer to its ever-evolving story.
With the emphasis on the Saturday 26th Private View event, Tailbone reflects an urge to escape current reality, just as the nightclub created a place to break away from the monotony of the working week.
