'The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.' Jean - Jacques Rousseau
In a world that is defined by limits, parameters and absolute order, one is bound to wonder if one should surrender oneself to such restrictions. Unlimited Bodies questions the concept of limits via the medium of art and brings together a group of artists that dare to challenge conventional barriers and have chosen to refrain from anything that might restrict their own sense of being and expression. Through the artists works, we invite you to enter a world of escapism and self-discovery and question the limitations of your day-to-day life, imagination and your body.
