An exhibition exploring the movement and shapes of acrobatics by artist Emma Jean Kemp.
With the explosion of the internet, it is easy to access images of people doing incredible acrobatics, amongst other activities, all around the world. These records are not only visually, awe inspiring but also a reminder of the impressive capabilities of human body and what can be achieved with time and dedication. We are the most adaptive species on the planet and capable of so many things when we put our minds to it. This exhibition will explore some of these beautiful movements, from cartwheels, to handstand variations and somersaults.
There will be sculptures depicting the pinnacle of a movement: the moment that is worked at for so long to reach. There will also be drawings and prints illustrating motion through time: exploring the lines and shape of the movement, giving us insight into the exertion that flashes us by.
Exhibition: 8th-10th June
Opening night Friday 8th June, from 6-9pm.
Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th OPEN 11am-5pm
On the opening night there will be some performances by dancers and acrobats, including Capoeira.
