Exhibition for The Waiting Room Project

Bodies in Play has been curated by Joel Humphries for The Waiting Room Project at the Sydney Sexual Health Centre, Sydney Hospital.
Artist statementExhibiting at the SSHC provided an opportunity to present artwork about bodies to patients, staff and visitors that uses humour, varied scale and movement. The work shifts between objects and images that explore bodies as corporeal and culturally inscribed as well as resilient and vulnerable.
The central work, ‘Mammaphone’, presents an enlarged ‘breast LP’ playing on a turntable, the turntable modified to the breast rather than the body modified to the discourse. Printed impressions taken from the Mammaphone ‘breast LP’ use colour and compositional space to abstract and draw attention to the surface of our bodies as beautiful and mysterious landscapes of circular patterns and irregular striations.
