Docile bodies are a collection of videos and photographs that display docile action and the injured human.

 

Andreas Constantinou worked collaboratively with photographer Rachel Cherry on Docile bodies where they investigated the question what is it to be a docile body? 

 

The results are a disturbing display of human fragility and injury; injuries resulting from being a docile subject, a victim of authoritative power. 

 

The work was inspired by modern day surveillance and its use in controlling and governing human behaviour and action. The works were deeply informed by Michel Foucault’s writings on power and punishment. 

Exhibited at various theatres and galleries throughout UK and Iceland
