The debut, one-night show exhibiting an ethereal series of black and white nude prints. The exhibition explores the enduring fascination and evolution of our views of the human body through nude bodies presented in sublime, supernatural forms.

About

"I do not want this to serve as a pretext for erotica, what I want is for these images to do battle with the great reserves of shame we humans hold for our own bodies.

My intention was to give a more objective view of our naked flesh, without playing upon sexual desire. My main motive to create them was how the nude has been a source of enduring fascination since whenever human beings ever became human beings, and the same too for artists ever since they've been around. Considering this, I became very much intent on crystallising my own way of seeing our form. I hope to have delivered this way, and I hope too that it is perhaps one of my many ways yet to come."
