This autumn the Bluecoat presents breathe, spirit and life 呼吸、靈魂與生命a group exhibition of six artists.

Artists include Soojin Chang (In collaboration with Georgie Rei-n Lo, Jade O’Belle, and Aditya Surya Taruna a.k.a. Kasimyn), Sulaïman Majali, Thulani Rachia, Roo Dhissou, Kiara Mohamed and Emii Alrai.

This exhibition is curated by guest curator, Katherine Ka Yi Liu 廖加怡.

The exhibition takes the Bluecoat’s site history, originally a charity school for children in poverty built in 1716-17 with proceeds from the Transatlantic slave trade, as its starting point.

Referencing Keith Piper’s peer support curatorial strategy in the group exhibition, Trophies of Empire (Bluecoat,1992), breathe, spirit and life  呼吸、靈魂與生命 repurposes the gallery as a communal space for cleansing, detoxification and purification as a collective decolonial healing process. Together, the artists explore ideas in relation to Taoist practice of self-cultivation, meditation, rituals, and harmonisation with nature.

A special preview for breathe, spirit, life 呼吸、靈魂與生命 will take place on Friday 7th October from 6pm.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a live programme of performances and events, details of which will be announced nearer to the time.
