'This exhibition mines the paradoxical nature of [Bellmer's] work and all its possible eventualities, using it as a starting point for contemporary debate. Despite the time separating the works on view, there are shared themes throughout: acts of transgression, the dissolution of bodily boundaries, the abject, extremes of pleasure and pain, and human–animal relationships. In this context, Bellmer’s drawings almost act as a control mechanism, a point from which to begin, rather than to end.'
