I Feel Like I’m
Not Here -
I’m Right Here!

Māpura Studios presents an exhibition of new work by select artists: ‘I feel like I’m not here - I’m, right here.‘

In this show, digital technologies, soundscape and portraits combine to communicate the politics around looking and also of being seen - how perception and experience are often unrelated. 

Expect charged emotion, a questioning of normalcy and bias, a challenge to societal assumptions around those differently gifted.

ON DISPLAY
Installation of Touch Compass’ dance written by Heidi Latsky  
ON DISPLAY is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse and different bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. ON DISPLAY began as a simple human sculpture court and is now a global movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art.
