23janAll Day28febHODA TAWAKOL | CORPS (IN)VISIBLES - (IN)VISIBLE BODIES

Event Details

Gallery Isabelle van den Eynde is pleased to announce Hoda Tawakol’s exhibition Corps (in)visibles / (In)visible Bodies in the French Institute’s ‘LES VITRINES’ street-front art space in Berlin. This exhibition is curated by Liberty Adrien.

Snaking across 25 meters, a dark mural dotted with the unblinking divine eyes of Horus sets the tone of this wry intervention where critique rubs shoulders with the uncanny.
A languishing, bulbous textile sculpture conjures a gnarled odalisque. Elsewhere, mammary-like appendages sag atop a multifarious bouquet of wadded tendrils.

A dark, jungle-like tapestry conflates nature with the body, and a trio of boisterous yet troubling falcon hoods crown the glassed-in show, which echoes her exhibition Between Bodies, shown at the Dubai gallery from 21 November 2020 to 25 February 2021.
In both interventions, Tawakol deepens her ongoing interrogation into politically charged questions surrounding the manipulation of women’s bodies and feminist agency.

Corps (in)visibles / (In)visible Bodies, part of the wider INDEX series of exhibitions in the German capital, has been selected by Frieze as among the top seven European shows currently on view.
