We are delighted to welcome you back to the gallery and, withour reopening, announce an exciting collaboration between Richard Saltoun Gallery and ourselves, which presents the physical realisation, reimagining and expansion of Richard Saltoun’s online exhibition, Bodily Objects.Running from the 17th of July to the 31st of August, Bodily Objects displays an exciting selection of works by seven artists: Helena Almeida, Rose English, Renate Bertlmann, Helen Chadwick, Judy Chicago, Alexis Hunter and Carolee Schneemann.“Through avant-garde performance, photography, collage, and sculpture, each artist developed unique and experimental ways in which to represent embodiment, often conflating the corporeal with the material, through blurring or substituting the body with objects, food, and flora. Whether libidinous, absurd, or menacing, the sustained tone is one of wry humour and satire, situated in resistance to the representation of women typified by the crude male gaze.”- Philomena Epps, May 2020Protective measures have been taken to ensure the utmost safety for visitors and staff, with gallery numbers capped at six visitors a time and hand santiser, gloves and face masks available for all upon arrival.The gallery is open Monday to Saturday 10-5pm and Sunday 1-5pm, visitors are welcome to drop in or to get in touch to book an appointment at info@arushagallery.com or at 0131 557 1412.
