What exactly is it that needs shoring?"- Drenched Co.

Notes:  "My meanderings begin from and through the work of the only male artist in this group show. I am perched on a tide of bodily waters, sloshing, swirling, frothing, back and forth, in and out in rhythmic displacements of bodies, knocking back, unclogging channels, clearing paths. This beat  presses the body into potential, into colonised spaces, into the conflict between life as limited and life as continuity. I am witness to an impending tsunami of release and expression, heading a charge against an eon of assimilating the impact on the body made by a white male universe. Shored by the limits of the skin, a rhythm rises against the epidermal understanding of personhood, against the dynamics of visibility and occlusion and against designed movements of a conquered body set in time and space. The skin, frontier of the new resistance, in a battle of blows against tyranny is  chrysalides to colonised ghostly bodies and it is warping space into impossible bodies everywhere. What again is it that needs shoring?!" - FaSa
