Our Bodies Remember
A group exhibit curated by Awakenings’ Program Director
The exhibition features six artists grappling with the adversity of existing in their bodies, when others have inflicted emotional, physical, and psychological pain, taking illicit ownership of their autonomy. Featuring a wide range of media and materials, the artists find commonality in their devotion to create work that evokes a visceral response. Through their work, they demonstrate the complexity, the fragility, and the synonymous nature of the body. At Our Bodies Remember, one can find works featuring internal bodily mechanisms and organs, the body interacting in various spaces, and the vandalized body, just to name a few. Through Our Bodies Remember these survivors embark on their individual artistic journey to heal and reclaim what is rightfully theirs, their body.
