Skin is a living organism. It can be decorated with ink or ravaged by disease. At times it is re-configured into commodities such as belts, shoes or jackets. As a surface, it has been endlessly explored through painting, sculpture and photography. Skin also forms a crucial pivot within the human debates concerning gender, race and body image. Skin Thing explores this highly charged surface through works by Polly Borland, eX de Medici, Adam Geczy and Peter Sculthorpe, Paul Knight, Archie Moore, Perimeter Books, Stuart Ringholt, Charles Robb, Salote Tawale and Jodie Whalen. There is a breadth of matter in the exhibition, both tactile and cerebral, that extends our thinking about this ubiquitous substance. Curated by Jane O’Neill.
