I am very happy to announce that I am participating and cocurating the upcoming show YESSR4 Flesh Garden along with canadien gallery owner Guy Berube (La Petite Morte Gallery, Ottawa). We have included the work of 17 artists from South America and artists represented by LPM, from Canada, Iran, England and USA.

This exhibition is an opportunity to cross meet South/North America, where geographical
limits are exceeded by the visceral urge to create and meet. We expect our artists to chop limbs,scatter around organs, to take maximum advantage of multiple chromatic attributes of skin; here we can all be surgeons and butchers.

FLESH GARDEN will bring together artists from across the Americas to share the experience
of representing the body in the New World. Canadian artists will be presented in the context of
colleagues from the United States and South America in a travelling exhibition that will be
presented in galleries in the Sala +18 (Santiago, Chile), in Casa Brandon (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
and La Petite Morte Gallery (Ottawa, Canada).

FLESH GARDEN provides an opportunity for artists to collaborate with each other and to share
with gallery visitors their paintings, photographs and mixed media collages depicting social and
physical trauma. The images are linked through their shared exploration of corporeal extremes,
invoking the anomalous and the exotic, the dismembered and the disturbing. Collectively, the
figurative works visualize the external evidence of internal states of disintegration,disfigurement,
and dysmorphia.

Between the tangible reality of lived experience and the surreality of psychic hallucination, this
selection of artists in the Americas reflects their diverse responses to the terrain of the human
body as the impact point of the social body.
