Dürst Britt & Mayhew is proud to present the group exhibition ‘Body Building’. ‘Body Building’ plays with the boundaries between physical, psychological and architectural space. Organic and anthropomorphic forms choose to either contrast or mix with more modular constructions. The exhibition space shows similarities with a construction site or a mental map, a place of transition and transformation

We would like to thank Galerie Lily Robert and Galerie Paris-Beijing for their kind cooperation
