The works at FACT reflect on different ways of understanding or connecting with the world, and each other, through our bodies. They suggest ways of coming together that move beyond our experience as individual humans, separate from each other and from nature. Exploring forms of mutual exchange, and practices of giving and caring, the works contest heteronormative logic – the belief that heterosexuality is the default, preferred, or normal mode of sexual orientation – and anthropocentrism – the belief that human beings are the most important entity in the universe. Using film, audio and installation to imagine alternative futures, B.O.S.S. (Black Obsidian Sound System) and Zheng Bo present other notions of belonging.
This exhibition will run until 29 August.
No booking required. Walk-ins welcome.
