About the event

Asylum Art Gallery | 20th June

Presenting 'Public Bodies'

14 collective members and studio holders work that offers over layered narratives discussing public space, access and restriction, including portraits of key workers, photography of shielders, paintings of our local community gatherings, ghosts, empty spaces and derelict cities.

There will  be an interactive video tour where you can access the work, including music, poetry and performance.

Available all day to view

At 7.30pm artist HM will present a live art action in the space 'Do digital profiles dream of death', exploring intimacy and tactility between hands in relation to western death practises and the distortion of the communal practises that take place when only accessible through online platforms.
