INTERNAL DISPLACEMENT; FIN DE SIÉCLE
The exhibition Internal Displacement; fin de siécle deals with how people’s understanding of the world holds together with various constructed moral and political dilemmas. The works explore the individuals` ability to adapt to divergent power structures and the desire for revolt and radical change. Political power is something deeply grounded in the biological nature of humans. The body is a gravity point for power strategies: It is trained, CAT scanned, diagnosed, medicated, isolated and set in relation with other bodies through nations, gender, state of health, age group and so forth. It is giant social body where singular bodies cannot be discerned from one another, rather creating a mountainous grey mass.
