Exquisite Bodies | Bruno Booth

Gallery 09 is dedicated to interactive, all ages, artist-led projects.

Exquisite Bodies, in collaboration with disabled artist Bruno Booth, interrupts preconceived perceptions of disability and normativity.

Through visitor interaction, experimentation and slow-play the figurative sculptures morph and change in unexpected ways.

Interrogating and expanding ideas of beauty, mobility and ability, this participatory exhibition draws on the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse, as an open-ended celebration of perceived error, surprise, and wide-ranging lived experience.

Exquisite Bodies challenges us to think about diversely abled bodies having to navigate a world that is uncomfortable by design, while celebrating the beauty and value of differently expressed ability.

I can't hide the fact that I have what society refers to as a disability. Instead, I concentrate on shaping the perceptions people have of what it means to be a disabled person. Like any other characteristic that defines a nuanced personality, disability can have positive and negative aspects. Disability is a spectrum of experiences not an automatic negation of a person's ability, value or potential.
