Assembling Bodies: Art, Science & Imagination

Posted in News with tags on November 14, 2009 by secretnaomi

Assembling Bodies: Art, Science & Imagination at the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, United Kingdom, until December 2010.

Curated by Anita Herle, Mark Elliott and Rebecca Empson, Assembling Bodies is a major interdisciplinary exhibition at the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, open from March 2009 to November 2010. The exhibition explores some of the different ways that bodies are imagined, understood and transformed in the arts, social and bio-medical sciences.

Assembling Bodies showcases Cambridge’s extraordinarily rich and diverse collections, complemented by external loans and exciting contemporary artworks. It brings together a range of remarkable and distinctive objects, including the earliest stone tools used by human ancestors, classical sculptures, medieval manuscripts, anatomical drawings, scientific and medical instruments, the model of the double-helix, ancestral figures from the Pacific, South African body-maps and kinetic artworks.

A series of special events and activities for a wide range of audiences is planned to run throughout the period of the exhibition, until December 2010. Numerous academic lectures, conferences and workshops are also planned.

Shigeyuki Kihara’s Fa’a fafine; in a manner of a woman triptych is included in this major exhibition.

Edge of Elsewhere at Campbelltown Arts Centre, Gallery 4A Asia Australia Arts Centre and Sydney Festival, 9th – 31st January 2010.

Edge of Elsewhere is a major three-year project (2010, 2011 and 2012) that brings together some of the most exciting contemporary artists from across Australia, Asia and the Pacific to develop new artworks in partnership with Sydney communities.

Sydney is one of Australia’s most rapidly changing cities and is now more culturally diverse than ever before. The continually changing demographics provide an imperative to examine the questions that shape and inspire us as individuals, communities and cultures.

Edge of Elsewhere reflects and engages with the diverse cultural mix of suburban Sydney.

Artists participating in the project include:
Brook Andrew (Australia)
Arahmaiani (Indonesia)
Richard Bell (Australia)
Dacchi Dang (Australia)
Newell Harry (Australia)
Shigeyuki Kihara (Aotearoa New Zealand)
Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba (Vietnam)
Lisa Reihana (Aotearoa New Zealand)
Khaled Sabsabi (Australia)
Wang Jianwei (China)

Gallery 4A Asia Australia Arts Centre has commissioned Talanoa; Walk the Talk V performance which opens the Edge of Elsewhere program held on the 14th January 2010.

I will be the Artist-In-Residence of the Gallery 4A Asia Australia Arts Centre from 30th November till the end of January 2010.

I am exhibiting all the moving image documentaries produced from the Talanoa; Walk the Talk performance series (including Talanoa V staged during my residency at Gallery 4A) in the group exhibition held at Gallery 4A.
