Tomorrow evening sees the preview opening of the new exhibition at GASP at Art Space Portsmouth entitled Render, an exhibition exploring and investigating the blurred boundaries between dress, skin and desire by artist Patricia Sharman.
“We drape and cover our bodies to shield, to protect, to sexualise and mark out our identities. We adapt and reconfigure ourselves artfully, playfully and cunningly in new ‘outfits’ to present to the external world.
But what of the internal world and that of our ‘infits’? What happens when these two worlds begin to contest and resist each other? ‘Render’ charts these inner tensions and conflicts”. – Patricia Sharman
The preview event is from 6pm to 8pm tomorrow evening and then the exhibition is open from Saturday 12th to Saturday 19th April, 12-4pm. Saturdays open to the public, all other times by appointment only. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for viewing or for more information.
