BOUND is a group exhibition exploring human enslavement from historical references to modern day bondage. The exhibition will show works of international artists representing personal perspectives on the physical and psychological impact of slavery on humanity. BOUND will incorporate archival material, conceptual work, photography, video, live art performance, interventions and installations.
Today, slavery may be illegal, but it also exists and is inexorable growing rapidly throughout the world. Currently at least 12 million people are enslaved. Violently forced to work they are denied freedom, dehumanised and treated as property, bought and sold.
Regardless of one's race, religion, social, political and cultural background, BOUND will invite the viewer to engage with issues of contemporary slavery by penetrating one's own profound experience in relation to freedom or choice of action. The exhibition will examine this gruesome condition in the contemporary world, as well as look into the questions of freedom, change, pride and belief. Stripped of any inhibitions and judgment, the artists in BOUND, will break Pandora's box wide open.
