My Body is a Cage

Exhibition, MAC's, Grand-Hornu, Hornu, Belgium.


Until September 25, 2016
A selection of works has been chosen in response to a central theme: the human body. Developed here is the idea of a ‘body-cage’ that both protects and confines our lives. While the exhibition brings together the classic disciplines of contemporary art (painting, sculpture, photography), several works also play with projected images.
Additionally, My Body Is a Cage pays tribute to certain significant figures in the history of art. And by way of extending its exploration of the body to other modes of expression, a series of dance duos by Swiss choreographer ZOO/Thomas Hauert is taking place in the exhibition rooms, entering into conversation with the works on display.
