Inspired by writings of Elaine Scarry (“The Body in Pain”, 1988) and Linda Nochlin (“The Body in Pieces”, 1994), in which they explore themes of embodiedness, anxiety, alienation and fragmentation as parts of modern perception, this exhibition asks how physical pain and social uneasiness are connected and how this is articulated visually. From a variety of perspectives, the artists engage with questions of otherness, longing and entrapment, in the literal as well as figurative sense.
