Max K Weaver and Delia Detritus invite you to a show about bodies – what bodies look like, what bodies want, and what bodies can do. There will be new drawings by Max, and sculpture and sound installation by Delia, and a live musical performance by both artists on the opening and closing nights.
Max K Weaver is an artist and musician, specialising in drawing and improvisation. He was included in the 2017 Bloomberg New Contemporaries, and exhibited in A History of Drawing at Camberwell Space in 2018, alongside works by Cornelia Parker, Frank Auerbach, and R.B. Kitaj. This exhibition will feature drawings borne out of a regular practice of life drawing, where fragmentary sketches of the model are elaborated upon in an improvised way, producing pictures of human bodies in a state of confusion, dissolution or transformation – morphing into landscapes, objects, text, or gestural lines.
Delia Detritus is a sculptor, musician and sound artist. She has performed live across the UK with her groups The Plastic Other and The Plastic Affair. This will be the first public exhibition of her sculpture. “They Told Me I Could Be Anything, So I Became a Dog” is a sculptural self portrait with an integrated sound installation, intended to commemorate and document her experience as she begins feminising hormone therapy, and serve as a crystallisation of her personal struggle with the physical aesthetics of transition.
