Desirable Body
is a group exhibition curated by Melanie Pocock (Curator, Ikon, Birmingham) for Hanover Project at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). Inspired by writer Hubert Haddad’s novel Desirable Body (2015), it presents works by four women artists which explore how bodily consciousness and the self are shaped by our desire for, and contact with, other bodies. In Haddad’s novel, protagonist Cédric Erg finds his head grafted on to the corpse of another man following a tragic sailing accident which paralyzes his body from the neck-down. The plot – a Frankenstein tale for the 21st century – evokes the vivid trauma of dismemberment and enforced attachment, as Cédric tries to recall affective memories rooted in his original body. Implicit throughout the novel is the gaze of Cédric’s girlfriend, Lorna Leer, who finds herself fascinated, attracted and revolted by his new body; at times taking pleasure in it during sex; at other times recoiling in horror at its “foreign” skin.

Support for work by Gina Osterloh provided by The Ohio State University Arts & Humanities Grants.

Curated by artist, writer and lecturer, Angel Velasco Shaw, Not Visual Noise is a seminal photography exhibition that will feature more than 30 artists living in the Philippines and in the Filipino diaspora. It aims to showcase a diverse range of artists engaged in photography-based art practices whose works broadly represent what is happening in the fields of photography today — from photojournalism, long-form documentary photography to conceptual and installation photography, and web/social media-based projects. The exhibition examines the tension between high/low culture and high/low art photography in a media-saturated world. Featured artists in this exhibition are National Artist Benedicto “Bencab” Cabrera, Ezra Acayan, Alex Baluyut, Ringo Bunuoan, Nana Buxani, Geloy Concepcion, Kiri Dalena, Lizza May David, Neil Daza, Kawayan de Guia, Kidlat de Guia, Romina Diaz, Carlo Gabuco, Tommy Hafalla, Nap Jamir, Raffy Lerma, Wawi Navarroza, Neal Oshima, Gina Osterloh, Butch Perez, Rick Rocamora, Emmanuel Santos, Lawrence Sumulong, Stephanie Syjuco, Wig Tysmans, Veejay Villafranca, Boy Yñiguez, and MM Yu.
