Mediastudies Exhibition – Ecclesial Anatomies –
.Ecclesial Anatomies – Exhibition at the AA Bar
by students of the Mediastudies course Ecclesial anatomies
Course Master – Tobias Klein
from 4th of March – 25th of March
open to everybody
Over three weeks, Ecclesial Anatomies transforms the AA Bar into a menagerie of organs – bodily compositions and voluptuous baroque curvatures set within the context of London’s churches. The exhibition showcases work by several students in the Media Studies course of the same title, and is based on the amalgamation of ideas of embodiment, scale, tectonics and ornamentation in the masterworks of Sir Christopher Wren and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Embedded within an architecture that is simultaneously exuberantly ornamental and concisely virtual, the work encompasses a fusion of voxel-based inside-out medical approaches in virtual environments within the traditional Euclidean geometries of the great churches of London, while at the same time condensing narration, ornament and an exuberant affinity for kitsch.
