London-based Jo Longhurst is primarily known for her projects around prize whippets and gymnasts, and the theme of perfection is complemented by a preoccupation with very high production values.
The gallery presents a section of her famous series Twelve dogs, twelve bitches (2003). In addition it displays prints from her more recent engagement with a gymnastics squad located in a favela of Rio di Janeiro. The latter also represents a stylistic switch with Longhurst evoking bodies in flux by interacting with the gymnasts using a cheap scanning wand.
Appropriately, she envisages more informal modes of presentation for a series marked by improvisation and unpredictability.
