What is a fit body? What do we mean by ‘fit’? The idea of fit body has changed over time or has it? The Ancient Egyptian Pharaohs proved their fitness every 30 years in Sed festival and today such physical prowess is not expected from our political leaders, though arguably we still prefer tall and slim Prime Ministers / Presidents in Anglo world. This exhibition explores Fit Bodies in the ancient and modern world intercut with the competition winning responses of UCL students to the concept of ‘Fit Bodies’.
