Christine Borland Preserves
Exhibition 2 December 2006 – 28 January 2007
Christine Borland makes art which deals with the body, and with our emotional, imaginative, medical and institutional sense of self. Her practice is hugely varied, yet it is united by a number of constants. Chief among these is an insistent interrogation of objects and situations which shed light on the junction between the fact of the body and the more imaginative or conceptual construct of the self: the mechanics and the mystery of human existence.
This exhibition brought together a selection of existing, recent, and newly-commissioned work and offered an opportunity to trace the development of Borland’s ideas
