24 April - 3 May 2009
ZONE D presents the exhibition "Nervous System" in James Taylor Gallery, London.
Artists: Aliki Krikidi, Yaron Lapid, Ellen Nolan.
Nervous System is a collaborative project developed from the desire to push three practices towards new forms and manifestations.
The title of the exhibition refers to the paintings of Francis Bacon and his interpretation of paint as a material affecting directly
our nervous system.
The exhibition wishes to explore the concept of fragility, focusing on the body as a vehicle revealing the vulnerability
of human nature in response to social relations and hierarchies. By navigating within the territory of corporality and abstraction, repulsion
and attraction, Nervous System wishes to set in motion instinctive reactions.
