Broken tools, skins of plastic, hi-top sneakers cast in lead, limbs protruding from repeating grids: Body Ruins is a collection of drawings, prints and sculpture that look at vulnerability, futility and failure of the gendered body within capitalism. These works look at that which we cannot do, places we cannot go, rather than our supposed endless potential, instilling pathos and humour into the prevailing dream of perfection and choice.
