Body of Tools presents performance art from the Centre For Chinese Contemporary Art’s archive, which explores the concept of the physical body as a tool, an art object, or an extension of an apparatus. Organic physiques are transformed into automated machinery and “inorganic” bodies are regenerated through interacting with organic substances.
