Grind by Jenni Hiltunen @ Dreamworld exhibition, UK, 6.9.-11.10.2014
Grind by Jenni Hiltunen has been selected to Dreamworld exhibition, UK, through AV-arkki’s distribution.
Dreamworld is a group exhibition that will explore the use of sex as a motivator for consumerist desire.
From the moment you leave the house, log on to the web or open a magazine, you are bombarded with airbrushed images of men and women posing languidly or suggestively draped over rocks. Dreamworld will examine issues surrounding image, gender politics and sexual orientation. We are all exposed to contradictory notions of ‘appropriateness’, what is sexy and what is seedy.
The exhibition features performance and moving image work by international and UK based artists who present a confrontational, poignant and witty take on sex and body-image. Dreamworld offers an antidote against the overflow of over-sexualised commercial messages in Newcastle’s city centre.
Dates of the event: Sep 6th until Oct 11th 2014 (Preview on Friday Sept 5th)
City: Newcastle Upon Tyne
Curator: Cecilia Stenbom and Will Strong
