Habitando un Cuerpo
Saturday 20 October - Sunday 4 November 2018 10:00am - 6:00pm
St Margaret's House

The exhibited works are a result of a search for connections and between the human body and nature. It’s also a tribute to the human body, its beauty, complexity and variety.

Laura in her artworks, uses symbols derived from nature to describe psychological unseen states of mind, identity, cultural and national roots. She sees human bodies as a temples of soul which exist with harmony, with universal energy, and nature’s laws.Her ultimate goal is to leave closer to nature without pollution, and noises of busy cities. She’s looking for tranquility, peace of mind, health and truth which in her opinion can be achieved by living very close to nature.

Marcin focuses on human body from a physical perspective. He explores human flesh. In his art practice, human form has been for many years the main subject of interest. The message he’s hoping to get across to the audience is that each of us should appreciate and love our own bodies. That’s something that seems to be very difficult to do in times when there is common pressure on “perfect body” and vicious critique, openly expressed on social media when someone is not complying with the standards. Body shaming is widely practiced and causes huge mental damage to people which lowers their self esteem.

Marcin considers nudity as a way of connecting with nature.

His works emphasizes the beauty of shapes, colours and the ingenious designs of human bodies. Every body is perfect.
