March 4th - March 30th
They might listen if we make no sound explores how trauma can affect perceptions of self in relation to the body and the abjected Other, with works by Sarah Sproule and Kristina Durka. Sproule’s work explores ideas of trauma, and the body through the intersections of fatness and queerness. Her work seeks to understand how we process and store trauma in the body with objects representing memories as they are monumentalized by material. Durka’s practice marries animal care ethics and dynamic relationships to the Other: other animals, (m)otherhood, and tumours through delicate ceramic sculptures. Durka’s larger sculptures are self reflections on the body as vessels to nurture cell multiplication and tumor growth.
