6cm of Prostrate Cancer – Manuel Pfeiffer @ M16 Artspace

15 June – 2 July 2017

Being in my 60s Prostate Cancer has been a regular part of conversations in my world for at least a decade. With that background Manuel Pfeiffer’s exhibition was a combination of quite confronting images and panels that were funny. The representations of various aspects of this condition were wonderful in their touching engagement with a deadly but regularly slow moving condition.
