Taking Walt Whitman’s iconic poetic celebration of the human being as its title and its point of departure, this exhibition explores the human form, embodiment and the lived experience through key works in The Niland Collection. The idea of ekphrasis underpins The Body Electric and it is this ancient technique of creating, writing and making that is at the heart of the exhibition, transgressing the world of art, the para-normal and the lived experience.
