‘Dangerous Bodies’ is Austrian artist Barbara Kapusta's first solo exhibition in the UK and the most ambitious culmination of her practice to date, featuring newly commissioned ceramic and digital sculptures.
The exhibition narrates a multitude of characters from within a post-humanity era, disembodied entities that are coming to terms with their own being. Kapusta’s protagonist(s) are one and are many, they are parts obscuring the centre, the partial body that speaks for a whole that cannot or does not want to be imagined as one. Speaking simultaneously to the viewer in a language teetering between threat and caress, they address political and social urgencies that are distilled out of an observation of the contemporary social and political fabric. Kapusta’s protagonists ask how to imagine future societies, what tools or thought experiments we have left or have to invent to fully imagine an otherness.
