“It’s Not Me, It’s You”

“It’s Not Me, It’s You” is a group exhibition exploring how one’s physical body can be owned and dispossessed through intimate interaction, on view at Gazelli Art House in London from May 23th through June 29.
As trans artists, Cassils, Zachary Drucker and Gray Wielebinski raise issues around marginalization and violence, gender and gentleness, through formal invocations of hardness and softness, while Nan Goldin’s work challenges the visual objectification of sex engaged by different kinds of lovers. Through critical engagement with dominant ways of seeing and being seen, the multi-disciplinary display of film, photography, sculpture and performance seeks to empower communities that historically have been stigmatized. “It’s Not Me, It’s You” reminds us of the vulnerability of being physically present in the world and answers with radical tenderness.
The presenting artists experiment with ways to tackle the two-way dilemma of how to appear to others and how to see others — with the dizzying sense that the positions of ‘you’ and ‘me’ might be exchangeable.
