Beneath the Surface visually represents the unseen, inner workings of the body, while referencing the complimentary and compelling relationship between visual art and medical science. Chrys Zantis’ heat manipulated fabric pieces ‘hold the memory’ of objects used to shape the medium and leave pockets of air in their wake. Also poetically referencing the ephemeral brain-body connection and representing the breath as central to mindfulness. Circular frames recall scientific apparatus like the microscope, magnifying glass and petri dish, while textiles form artistic representation of body tissues for visitors to explore.
This event is part of the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival, an initiative of Architecture Media and State Library of Queensland.
