In modern society, the theme of а female body is still full of taboos, cultural prejudices and myths. Nobody burns “witches” nowadays, however, even today female body is a territory where the owner of one is constantly getting shamed and feels guilty and helpless.
We announced an open call “This is not your body” and invited artists who have something to say on this sensitive topic.
“This is not your body” is the first part of our exhibition which is devoted to the physical side of a body. Describing the body as frank and vulnerable, aching and shackled, as body in despair: the artists don’t try to idealize bodily images, they put into the foreground the sensual aspect of perceiving their own body and the difficult relationship with it.
