"The Intrinsic - Representation of Eros" Exhibition
Up Field Gallery
This event has ended.
Since ancient times, the representation of Eros has been associated with a male figure, while the appreciation of this image is also assumed to be through a male gaze. It may be no exaggeration to say that the concept and representation of Eros has been constructed from a purely male perspective. The dualism posed by the two genders, male-female, has always been posited in a way that prioritizes the male before the female. In most cases, female nudes are examined from a male viewpoint, as if the image of Eros was something only to be shared among men. Doesn't Eros also exist in the female domain? The participating artists in this exhibition attempt to tackle the representation of Eros that resides within women.
