THE PUBLIC BODY 0.3, Artspace, Sydney
THE PUBLIC BODY .03 is the final in a three-part series of exhibitions we have presented annually from 2016–18 exploring multifaceted ideas around the public body.
THE PUBLIC BODY .03 situates the body as detached from or encompassing much more than mere physical form. This body is a rhizomatic network of associations and relationships, mediated by notions of the digital, the hybrid, the atemporal and the futuristic. Living in an era of what Paul Preciado terms ‘punk hypermodernity’, the body is not one but many things – melancholic, lonely and alien; but also hyper-conscious, humorous, resilient and versatile.
