DESCRIPTION

Both the abject and sublime throw all boundaries into question.  Bodies leak and the sublime gets sticky.  Is the abject, then, sublimity's other or its double viewed from a slightly skewed position? Shock and Awe: where the abject and sublime converge examines these questions through the works of 21 contemporary artists
