An Elastic Continuum, 2023

An international symposium at S1 Artspace, Sheffield. Curated by NMRG co-leads Sharples & Rebecca Howard.  

Arriving from the proposition of ‘skin’, An Elastic Continuum offers an interface with skinnings: surfaces, architectural structures, organisms, membranes and embalmings. The works on show present a plethora of intersectional readings that transect ontologies of animacy and the sensorial, biotechnical interventions (birth, growth, ailment, and death), human, animal and plant bodies, and spaces of trans-ition, whether -gender, -species or interior-exterior relations).

Featuring: Ellie Barrett, Bethan Hughes, Sinéad Kempley, Victoria Lucas, Stephanie Rushton.
