Local artist Aurora Elwell playfully explores themes of being physically disrupted and hurt in her first solo exhibition Antibody. Through wheel-thrown forms and intuitive hand-building processes, Elwell reveals a ‘place’ where the physical body and subconscious mind meet.

Utilising experiences of ‘bodily reclamation’ and referencing her own body image, Elwell draws upon the invisible and inhuman qualities of the human form. Her unearthly adaptations of the figure are uncanny yet familiar. Dreamlike and contorted shapes and figurative appendages recur disrupting the sculptures from a sense of reality, creating visual connections between mind, body and spirit.

Elwell’s works involve processing memories of trauma, isolation and bodily disengagement and through her practice, Elwell strives to provide an inclusive platform where the viewer can respond.

For an opportunity to learn more about Elwell's artistic practice and work, she will host her own 'Meet the Artist' event at the gallery on Sunday 21 February starting at 1.30pm. Bookings are essential for capacity numbers. Phone 131 872 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to book your place.
