BODY OF WORK: The latest exhibition at photographer Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio shop and gallery space in London’s Mayfair takes an unflinching look at the body and its role in fashion and art. The show, called “Inside/Out,” takes the body and the idea of “abject beauty” as its starting point. Some of the pieces on show include a film of Lady Gaga devouring an animal heart shot by Knight and Ruth Hogben, a white dress by designer Marko Mitanovski which was worn by Gaga — on which the artist Puking Millie has vomited green-tinted milk — and a Marilyn Minter film showing a model’s tongue licking sweets and cake mixture. “The body is something that captivates the art and fashion world alike,” said Carrie Scott, director of the SHOWstudio Shop. “We wanted people to look at different conventions of beauty…we’re not just saying the girl in the magazine is beautiful — there’s more to it than that.” The show runs through Aug. 14. After that, Scott said the gallery’s next show in September would look at dolls, with pieces by Viktor & Rolf and a collaboration between designer Peter Jensen and artist Laurie Simmons. “Dolls have fascinated people for ever and ever….It’s going to be like an army of dolls in here,” said Scott.
