Dysmorphia – The preoccupation of perceived physical defects or flaws in one’s appearance…..
Textile artist Andrew Delaney (Anno Domini Home) delves deep into the human psyche with his exhibition of strange and unsettling Victorian human specimens. Body image aberrations and psychological twists go beyond the norm and all the labels, to question what it really is to be human….
Stripped bare, fabric becomes flesh and bone, each stitch a revelation into how we see ourselves rather than how others perceive us. Fragility and beauty in the grotesque, our flaws and differences are a celebration of our own inner freak……
Shown in the wonderfully eclectic LORD COCONUT store on the corner of Lonsdale and Elizabeth streets, DIS-MORPHIA sits amongst a myriad of gentlemen’s contemporary fine jewellery and prized ornaments….
Delaney’s previous works includes: The Vivisector, Lincoln and the Civil War and Charles Darwin.
