Humid, part of the Melbourne Festival, is an international exhibition that
explores the feminine sublime, featuring works by artists Tacita Dean, Kate
Daw, Ann Hamilton, AK Dolven, Pipilotti Rist, Mariele Neudecker, Christine
Borland, Clara Ursitti and Nina Saunders.
Humid - as an attitude rather than a weather condition - refers to the
sometimes petulant, sultry, even sexy, feminine unconscious and its
physical manifestations. Humid is hot, sweaty, oppressive, uncomfortable,
but also languid, sensual and tropical. Humid is a state of mind, a state
of being. Pleasure and danger, passion and petulance collide as Humid
evokes the seductive and potentially destructive power of femininity.
