Event description

UTS will screen the feature film Under the Skin (2013) (Dir: Jonathon Glazer) as part of the public program of events in conjunction with the dual-gallery exhibition Stacks & Sleeves: A Post-human Landscape presented by Gallery Lane Cove and UTS creative community precinct partner Galerie Pompom. The exhibition, spanning across two venues, explores key Posthuman elements of real and imagined futures, including but not limited to human augmentation, extension of human life with digital/bio technologies and interstellar travel.

'Scarlet Johansson’s character is also eventually caught in this cauldron of anomie. In one pivotal scene, she stares blankly at herself in a mirror, misrecognising who she really is. She examines her body as if it doesn’t belong to her (which it doesn’t, it has been lifted off a corpse), capturing the sense that the self is a project that can be made, re-engineered, in an age of consumer products and surgical transformations. This is the haunting mirror of neo-liberal individualism staring back into itself.' Sean Redmond, 2016

Under the Skin will be introduced by Alex Munt & Justin Harvey, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences at UTS.
