BODIES OF SILENCE is a special project curated in support of ONE BILLION RISING London Art Festival, which includes international artists Regina José Galindo (Guatemala), Sukran Moral (Turkey) and Pilar Albarracà n (Spain). Some of the emerging artists selected have been the result of an open call for work that stresses the ethical and political implications of silence as a by-product of traumatic crime. We have selected artwork that is explicit in its political activism as much as we are interested in portraying more open-ended representations of bodies that communicate silence, trauma, politics and ethics.
For our third and last event, WHEN WORDS ARE MADE FLESH, we have selected work that exposes the traumatic nature of violence through embodiment and performance. We will be looking at work that opens up into a safe space where trauma can be communicated, contained, subverted and processed through re-enactment. This event also coincides with One Billion Rising: A Global Movement to end Violence against Women and Girls.
