SOLO EXHIBITION: VISCERAL BODIES BY MIKA KAILES 







Produced, styled and photographed by Mika Kailes, Visceral Bodies unpicks the layers of the human form through dialogic acts between the body and garment. The work emphasises the ways in which they become an extension of the body–eventually transforming it.

Juxtaposing immiscible elements, the project creates an interplay between organic and seemingly unnatural forms and their coexistences. The imagery, full of references, is not singular but instead envelops external viewpoints. The interaction is continued from the images seen through the lens of the camera to the subjects, intensifying the collective imagination.

Visceral Bodies reawakens interconnections between the original and the reproduced by introducing powerful documentation of modes of temporality that remind of the endless ways a fashioned body is being or moulded into becoming ’a certain kind’. Moments of expression, reflection and projection are not only shared but in symbiosis with the gazes that contribute to transformations of the human figure through its cycle of life.
