States and Senses is an interdisciplinary exhibition which explores intense emotional states that are often suppressed, such as grief, rage, loss, fear, anguish, and their drivers. By drawing upon wide ranging experiences of vulnerability, a term commonly associated with reduced agency, the artists in this exhibition cultivate a space for reflection, contemplation and identification.
States and Senses features new work by critically acclaimed US artist, Janet Passehl and Sydney-based artists, Sylvia Griffin, Brooke Leigh, Markela Panegyres and Cecilia White. They each navigate difficult emotional and sensory terrain through different performative practices. Particularly concerned with female perspectives, these artists engage the(ir) body as subject in order to contribute to a growing, globally urgent, examination of challenging social and (inter)personal experiences.
