It’s all in the Mind, no, it’s all in the Body and the Mind is a Body Part and our bodies hold a lot of ‘stuff’. Mistry together with artist Rhianne Burgess explores the way in which bodies act as vessels which store and leak the trauma and experience of significance in out lives. Today in the Lightbox Gallery you will find samples of our working process. It’s not a ‘final exhibition’, it’s elements of our working process on pause.
Following on from Artist is Absent. Mistry continues to explores her Inevitable Absence from the Gallery and life in general on Fridays. After 50mins, a small room in the hospital every Friday with an NHS Therapist, Priya does not participate, don’t expect to see Priya, she won’t be there.
