A new Sydney exhibition is celebrating the human body with a controversial collection of nudes exploring political and social themes.
The Public Body .02 exhibition has combined the work of artists from 14 countries including South Korea, Guatemala, Russia, Pakistan, Singapore, China and Mexico.
The show follows last year's The Public Body .01, which dealt with "sexualised bodies".
It runs until October 2 at Woolloomooloo's gallery Artspace.
The exhibition focuses on the "range of practices embedded in feminist, queer and anti-racist" subjects.
The explicit content has attracted little negative attention in contrast to the work of photographer, Bill Henson, who had his work seized in 2008 for censorship issues.
Curator, Alexie Glass-Kantor said she has no problem with debate and the gallery had ensured all censorship laws were followed.
Ms Glass-Kantor said the artists work examined the political terrain of the public body.
"The public body underscored is not a linear and knowable entity... it’s wild and perverse, uncertain and unstable," she said.
"The exhibition is deliberately troubled and thorny."
