“To be really mediæval one should have no body. To be really modern one should have no soul. To be really Greek one should have no clothes.” – Oscar Wilde
Our relationship with our bodies is ambivalent, despite phenomenology’s claim: ‘flesh is at the heart of the world’ (Merleau-Ponty); we remain reluctant to explore this, to probe the body’s fragility thereby bolstering our understanding of embodiment itself.
126, Artist-run Gallery is proud to present works by: Elisabetta di Sopra, Giancarlo Marcali, Ilaria Margutti, developed in partnership withAmistadelab- Art & Culture and is supported by the Arts Council IrelandProject Award and Galway International Arts Festival. A multi-disciplinary exhibition of textile, video and photography.
