The artworks in this exhibition are not gathered through a reccurring theme, but through a shared touch. Each handles their subject, their materials or their exploration with a tenderness.

It requires something specific… Some sort of warmth? Maybe it’s the artists’ approach, or the feeling that arises from encountering their work?

Maybe its a collection of feelings simultaneously, layered onto one another through gentle processes.

All that is certain, is that I FEEL TENDER.

“All of our actions take their hue from the complexion of the heart, as landscapes their variety from light.” -Francis Bacon

In our flesh and blood bodies we all eat, drink, sleep, laugh, cry, breathe… but we come to understand our bodies so differently, doing these simple actions in unique ways. Encountering another body may seem the most mundane, trivial experience ― happens all the time. Yet, to understand how another feels their body, how their body works, what it means to them, is an enriching exchange ― learning from one another’s daily lives. In Soft Stimuli, artists open this intimate space between beings.

“Let’s face it. We’re undone by each other. And if we’re not, we’re missing something.” ― Judith Butler

Hyper Real: Black History Exhibition and Event Series

Dougy Hérard
Daniel Itiose

Elizabeth Eugene

Individuality, commonality, the emotional, the bodily, masculinity, femininity, permanence, erasure, oppression, freedom, isolation, connection, labour, identity, fiction, history, non-conformity, vulnerability and subject/object positions.
In Hyper Real, nine contemporary Black artists take on this range of multifaceted themes. Each grounds their creative expression in a particular subject. Yet they bring varying and even contradictory approaches to these subjects. Analyzing. Remixing. Reframing. Erasing. Reclaiming. At once meditative and inventive.
In each work, by looking at the specific, truths of the human condition are revealed.
You can see clearly every pixel, pore, brush stroke and coffee stain.
What do you find in the reflection?
“The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is ―it’s to imagine what is possible.”
― bell hooks
