“Contingent Bodies” focuses on the representation of bodies in transformation, both organic and unfamiliar. Fragmented bodies emerge in the play between abstraction and figuration, embedded in perpetual rootlessness, containing exile and otherness within themselves. These polymorphic figures confront sexual and cultural categorization, recasting the body as part imaginary and part construct.
