Where I end and you begin


Where I end and you begin

Amanda Wolf

Opening 06.06.15 6-8pm
Artist Talks 27.06.15 6-7pm

Amanda Wolf's Where I end and you begin responds to the teeming multiplicity of the body and explores the emotional and biological possibilities of the parasitic relationship. Through a decorative and hyper-colour collection of large-scale soft sculptures and stop motion videos, Wolf readdresses the body as both a physical and emotive landscape full of abject beauty and playful monstrosities. Combining the imaginary and autobiographical with occurrences in nature and the human body, Where I end and you begin examines the poetic connotations surrounding destructive dependency and the host body's sacrificial role as home.
