This event has ended.

Derek Eller Gallery presents Hair and Skin, a group exhibition organized by Isaac Lyles.

Hair and Skin presents the body in extremes to elicit physical empathy. The work is visceral, it connects to our phenomenal consciousness, speaks to corporeal experience, the unruliness of desire, and the relationship of pleasure and pain. The instability of the body, and the means of communicating these vicissitudes, are the subject of Hair and Skin.

The exhibition takes inspiration from the developing research on mirror neurons and neuroesthetics. Found in the human brain, mirror neurons enable physical empathy; the ability to physically respond to, for example, someone breaking their leg or a couple engaged in sexual intercourse. In other words: ‘What I see, I feel.’
