Nicky Ginsberg, President of Chippendale Creative Precinct and Director of Kensington Contemporary is delighted to present Alyssa Choat and Lin Wei"s "PHENOMENAL BODIES" opening on Thursday 5th October 2017. The exhibition is the final instalment of cutting edge visual technologies and vibrant ideas from our partners over the road at the UTS School of Design.

PHENOMENAL BODIES is a joint exhibition between Alyssa Choat and Lin Wei exploring the human body and its form. Underpinning both sets of work are the concepts of visual ambiguity and the uncanny, achieved through a variety of photographic and spatial techniques.

Alyssa Choat"s "Collapsed Bodies" 2017, explores the disobedience and vitality of materials when moved by the body through digital film and photographic stills.

In these works, Choat attempts to create a figure/s in the work that are visually ambiguous by employing contact improvisation techniques to generate abstract movement and interaction with materials and other bodies by the performers.

Lin Wei"s series "Seeing through the Mirror" 2017 engages sensory understanding and interpretation of the human figure, exploring distortions of the body that contain traces of the unfamiliar.

The fictitious manifestation of the human form challenges perceptual boundaries through the appearance of the strangely familiar yet ambiguous forms. The final photographs are free of post production manipulation.

Join us Thursday 5th October from 6 to 8pm at Kensington Contemporary to welcome Alyssa Choat and Lin Wei"s PHENOMENAL BODIES with wine and conversation galore!

The exhibition will be held till Saturday, 28 October.
