Rebecca Warren & others @ Whitechapel Gallery

10 April 2018 - 12 August 2018

Pregnancy is one of the most extreme states of the human condition, according to art theorist Amelia Jones, as it reveals the ‘tension between self as subject and self as object’. The final display from the ISelf Collection takes its title from Paloma Varga Weisz’s  ambiguously gendered pregnant figure, Bumped Body, reflecting on shifting concepts of selfhood.
23 artists consider subjectivity in relation to the body, the object and the environment. Many works offer fragmented and visceral perspectives where the human meets the inanimate.  Placing figures in states of metamorphoses, artists rupture our sense of physical cohesion to reveal new possibilities that lie beyond selfhood.
Artists include: Mark Manders, Maria Bartuszovà, Huma Bhabha, Alexandra Bircken, Tian Doan na Champassak, Ruth Claxton, Tony Cragg, Enrico David, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Geoffrey Farmer, Georg Herold, Kati Horna, Sarah Lucas, Seb Patane, Pippilotti Rist, Bojan Šarčević, Wael Shawky, Daniel Silver, John Stezaker, Nicola Tyson, Cathy Wilkes.
