In the flesh is an enthralling and immersive experience of contemporary figurative art that explores the concept of humanness. The exhibition invites you to contemplate the nature of consciousness, self-awareness and emotional states through the works of ten Australian artists.
Confronting the themes of intimacy, empathy, transience, transition, vulnerability, alienation, restlessness, reflection, mortality and acceptance.
In the flesh dwells on the interface of the mind and the body. Bringing together work in diverse media with a fresh psychological edge from public and private collections, the exhibition features Jan Nelson, Natasha Bieniek, Patricia Piccinini, Juan Ford, Petrina Hicks, Ron Mueck, Yanni Floros, Sam Jinks, Michael Peck and Robin Eley.
