Stage One of this project was curated in collaboration with Roman Curator Francesco Stocchi, and Stage Two has been developed in collaboration with Paris-based Curator Chris Sharp.

Initially Still Vast Reserves explored ideas of the kinetics of compression, encouraging a sculptural interpretation of the body and the self in relation to architecture. This second exhibition extends and skews these ideas fore grounding interpersonal encounters through the psychosexual and socio-sexual aspects of the body, particularly in relation to urban or civic spaces. The works in this exhibition employ a range of materials and tactics to investigate ideas of the uneasy body, exploring its possibilities for immateriality and metaphor.
