Being Here, Kupfer


24 July - 14 August

Being Here is an exhibition of works by Saelia Aparicio, Evangelia Dimitrakopoulou, Roxman Gatt, Jack Jubb, and Davinia-Ann Robinson, curated by Jeanette Gunnarsson.

There is a palpable air of change around us as our living and embodied experiences move towards unknown futures. Right now, we are experiencing a collective corporeal happening, in a fluid state of metamorphosis, shapeshifting, meandering, adapting, expanding, and existing against all the odds. How do we navigate, live through, and overcome the present? Fractured and isolated, we look for ways to remain connected to ourselves and to each other. We ask ourselves: What does it feel like, being here?

Being Here explores embodied realities through a surrealist and post-apocalyptic lens, looking at how the human body exists within our current landscapes. It considers the body from a phenomenological perspective, examining how we live in relation to the objects surrounding us, the spaces we inhabit, on the premise that reality consists of events (phenomena) as they are perceived or understood within human consciousness.
