Saelia Aparicio: Your Consequences Have Actions

Saelia Aparicio: Your Consequences Have Actions

Details

Your Consequences Have Actions is Saelia Aparicio's first major solo show in a public gallery in the UK, bringing together newly commissioned works made especially for The Tetley, shown alongside a selection of existing works and several drawings and sculptures from the Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art Collection on loan from the Whitworth, The University of Manchester.

The body is a malleable source of wonder and horror for Aparicio. For her it is simultaneously a mask, a costume to be worn, and a changing, ever moving form shaped by ageing and disease. Aparicio's figures take their skin off and leave it behind draped over chairs, creatures emerge from under fingernails, features are squashed and smashed together.

Aparicio will create a new drawing for The Tetley's Leeds Beckett Atrium wall – filling the gallery space and flowing into the ground floor Bar & Kitchen. Spanning four floors and curling into several gallery spaces the drawing will be impossible to view in its entirety.

Alongside Aparicio's works is a selection of works by six female artists from the Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art collection, with sculptures by Marie Rose Lortet and Judith Scott, and drawings by Aloise Corbaz, Madge Gill, Lee Godie and Martha Grunenwaldt. See over the page for more information on the Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art collection.

You can see Saelia Aparicio at work on her new wall drawing during the exhibition's installation from TUESDAY 7 TO FRIDAY 10 NOVEMBER.

Launch event Thursday 23 November from 6pm - 8pm.
