[ADVERT]Titled after the horse in Ana Sewell's novel, Black Beauty (1877), it may come as a surprise that the only horse in American artist's Lutz Bacher's latest exhibition, is white. Or at least it appears that way when photographed in negative. What something is and what something appears can be quite different, and is explored in Bacher's work when she focusses on the theme of identity.

Having lived in California since the 1970s, this will be Bacher's first major solo exhibition in the UK. Black Beauty is a showcase of work especially commissioned for the Institute of Contemporary art, and is free to visit until 17th November. Bacher works in a range of mediums, including photography, sculpture, film, and sound. As you walk through a gallery of scattered coal, you will hear audio recordings of Puck from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. This visceral experience draws you in on a physical level, as you examine the notion of identity, sexuality, and the human body.
