Beyond reason

Exploring the logic of the imagination


About the exhibition

A rambling picaresque exhibition of works that venture into the fairytale, the absurd, masquerade, animal/human transformation, theatre, satire, anti-fashion and parody. Beyond Reason exudes whimsy, improvisation, spontaneity, humour, gesture and intuition whilst exploring ideas of cultural identity, popular culture, and sexuality.
