London based Italian artist Ludovica Gioscia's third solo show with the gallery. The exhibition presents a new body of work produced by the artist in the second half of 2022 during her pregnancy, a moment in the artist's life that has proved influential to her practice and philosophy.
Gioscia's work reads like a diary of layered experiences and relations, now among them the incredible journey the body undergoes whilst forming a new life. Continuously amazed at the wonders of the human body, the artist explores it's very inception and the organs involved through her distinctive artistic style and approach to materials, creating a fantastical portrayal of this moment in her life. Gioscia sees artworks as being alive, hence constantly evolving, and infused with a sort of animism. The show will further the artist's ongoing Portal and Giant Accessories series.
