“Always present in every society, often used as a means of connection with the divine, the mask has now become an engaging and confronting fetish and trend, a fear; straddling fashion and art, for a game in which being and appearing are reversed and alternated.”
We explore these, and related themes in UnMasked. The exhibition features new body-centred technologies, creating a shape-shifting dialogue between Sharka Bosakova’s 3D printed performative objects and the body landscape.
UnMasked creates a rich and engaging space which will stimulate self awareness, question norms and enhance our understanding of how masks define and outline our social engagement and embodied selfhood in the age of the #Selfie and COVID-19.
Opening Event: Thursday, 10 September, 6pm – 8pm
