CONTESTABLE BODIES – ALTERNATE ANATOMICAL ARCHITECTURES

Stelarc

3 November 2018 - 27 January 2019
Main Gallery

Cutting-edge performance artist, Stelarc, provides us with a wider and deeper understanding of the profound limitations of the human body and of the possibility of alternate anatomical architectures. In this age of body hacking, gene mapping, prosthetic augmentation, organ swapping, face transplants, synthetic skin & chimeras what it means to be a body, what it means to be human and what generates aliveness and agency becomes problematic.

Take a look at Stelarc’s website for further information on his work.

The City of Mount Gambier acknowledges the Boandik Peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land and water our city sits upon today.

We respect and recognise the deep feelings of attachment and the spiritual relationship our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have with the land and water.
