THE EXILED BODY
By Emma ROCHESTER

22 April – May 3 2009
Opening: 6pm Thursday 23 April
Artist Talk & Screening: 6pm Thurs 30th April

The Exiled Body is series of life drawings, which erase the descriptive portrayal of the body through technology and repetition.

Working within the medium of digital paintings, drawing, and installation Rochester’s work often tells stories about space and movement; artistic practice and the body.

The Exiled Body challenges viewers’ conceptual thinking as each drawing is made up of a series of projected lines. A step toward figurative works, this also marks a break in tradition from Rochester’s previous works. What is revealed in each image is the depiction of the human body that defies recognition and identification.

The body in its knowable form is exiled.
