A must-visit for lovers of the weird and wonderful, PM/AM’s latest exhibition 10 pushes the boundaries of comfort whilst championing the figurative form in various unexpected ways. Eccentric, absurd and, at times, just plain trippy, the exhibition explores how the body interacts with conceptual and physical spaces, taking into account historical and symbolic representation in the present day.
The exhibition’s deep dive into fantasy and abstraction is exactly what we needed after a year in lockdown. Cue naked red dogs and naked red women (Amanda Ba), ominous long-limbed, hunched blue bodies (Tahnee Lonsdale) and bristly, almost safety pin-like vibrant nudes (Didier William). Our favourites from the show were definitely the two most outlandish pieces – brace yourselves. Not one for the faint-hearted is Emma Cousin’s ‘The Voices of Dinosaurs’, depicting three vivid warped inhabitants entangled in a toe-and-finger-licking rally.
Another showstopper is Matthew Hansel’s ‘To Be A Vessel Who’s Only Intent Is To Hold Your Heavenly Gaze’, portraying a fully nude woman holding the legs of an upside-down devil creature (who also has a bird’s nest for balls). The duo are surrounded by a host of quirky characters including a walking egg-man in a top hat and a nipple emerging from a cracked egg sat on an owl. Shrug emoji.
