The work presented herein cannot be described in simple terms. Just as embodiment encompasses the embrace of anything, the realisation of something and the physicality of ideas, so do the works that are on display throughout the show. The artists of Embodiment encompass a wide range of themes, yet each embodies their work with the physicality of them. From the exploration of painting as a barrier, an attempt at perfection in representation and as a way of simply emptying out; the fascination with the future of man kind, its vulnerability, and how by limiting its surroundings, how it will cope with the future its created for itself; the portraiture of inaccessibility, the uncertain and the unknowable; the opening up of knowledge, the evolution and past and future history of animals; the relationship between the artist in authority and the viewer, the rituals of viewing and the histories of perspectives; to the visceral nature of all things, the show Embodiment embraces all these things and brings them to the foreground; making them tangible to all and allowing the viewer to experience something new.
Goldsmiths Debuts is a series of preliminary exhibitions by students of BA Fine Art and History of Art, supported by Red Bull and hosted at Red Bull Studios, 155-171 Tooley Street, SE1.
