Mutated Bodies


“The body is comparable to a sentence that invites us to disarticulate it, so that, through a series of endless anagrams, its true contents may be recomposed.” —Hans Bellmer

Applied to both contemporary and historical works that depict contorted, dismembered, or grossly exaggerated human or non-human forms, limbs, and other body parts. Some of the most iconic examples include the works of Francis Bacon, Egon Schiele, Bellmer, and the YBA duo Jake and Dinos Chapman.
