Bodyscapes studies the concept of embodiment and the corpus as an organizing structure. Examining the relationship between nature and culture through the prism of the body, this exhibition brings together historical sources and artworks ranging from prehistory to contemporary art in a variety of media: works on paper, photographs, sculpture, paintings, video works, and installations. Artists including Janine Antoni, Tracy Emin, Jenny Saville, Micha Ullman, Maya Zack, Karam Natour, Sigalit Landau, and Ori Reisman explore questions of proportion, the relationship between human beings and nature, and corporeal and mental boundaries in order to make personal, social, and political statements.
