Somers Gallery presents Body as Home, a curated focused duo exhibition of Marisa Polin and Adriana Wynne.
Home is where one starts from. –T. S. Eliot
The human body is a complex vessel that contains organs, fluids, hormones, bacteria, bone structures… For some, this container is the only home we ever truly own, a place to house the ideas, feelings and memories we collect throughout our lives.
Body as Home features the work of Marisa Polin and Adriana Wynne, two artists who have experienced moving around the world throughout their lives and understand the anxiety caused by the constant search for belonging. They both coincide in London this year as they study an MA in sculpture at the RCA.
Through abstract shapes, colourful palettes, and a wide range of materials, their works map out their homes with their lifelong but ever-growing memories: their true belongings.
This exhibition invites us to glimpse into this embodied space. A place they call home.
