The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present Dark Body, an exhibition by artist Jack Butler.

Could the body stand in the place of the limen between two historically defined solitudes? Can the body be represented as an ontologically transparent layer through which art and science are mutually visible?


Exhibition essay by Andre Jodoin.

Jack Butler's hybrid practice uses the means and methods of visual art to produce research in two domains - medical science (embryogenesis primary research and the current project “Occam’s Hand”, at the intersection of art and medicine) and collaborations with Inuit artists (Art & Cold Cash). With degrees in visual art and philosophy, Butler exhibits internationally with work in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Canada. Please note that the exhibition includes some images of a sexual nature.
