The entrancing installation engages all senses, looking into the nature of life. The Exquisite Wound is an interdisciplinary installation by visual artist Rebecca Swan in collaboration with composer Charlie Ha, engineer Peter Swan, light artist Peter Stoneham, and scientist David Shillington. The works contemplate how we relate to the disappearance of our physical bodies, and asks the question, "what are we without them?"

Rebecca Swan examines the nature of our existence using digital and analogue technology with a set of works featuring photographs, video and a soundtrack.

Proudly supported by Creative Communities, Upper Hutt.
