Louise Bourgeois & others @ Cromwell Place Gallery

12 July 2021 - 4 September 2021

This exhibition, Body Topographies, brings together five influential female artists whose work offers a nuanced understanding of the female gaze.  It spans multiple generations and continents, and presents work by Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010, Paris, France), Heidi Bucher (1926- 1993, Winterthur, Switzerland), Mandy El-Sayegh (b. 1985, Malaysia), Adriana Varejão (b. 1964, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), and Cecilia Vicuña (b. 1948, Santiago, Chile). Each artist engages with the body, rendering it in ways that are abstract, conceptual, political, and at times surreal.

Body Topographies presents varied depictions of the body that engage complex themes including colonialism, anthropology, personal and shared history, sexuality, pain, familial relationships, and identity.
