The Hidden Gesture displays work that communicates the unintentionally expressed and the intentionally unexpressed. These artists recognise the inevitable collapse and failure that accompanies probing into the available means of conveying intent – with a strong focus towards, yet not exclusive to, the body – through art. Inevitably each action reveals and conceals elements of our identity and the messages we wish to disseminate about ourselves and others. As identities and perspectives are in constant flow, these works aim to analyse how what is present and absent through intention transitions to its culminated artistic products and what that declares about artistic agency.
