Pelvic Chain

Galerie mladých 27 03 — 04 05
Opening — 26 3 2024

Marie-Anna Šulc tries to search for utopian narratives in dystopian imaginings, thus creating a merging border between dystopia and utopia. She focuses on the question of intersectionality, the experience of bodies and feminist perspectives. 

The centerpiece of the exhibition is the video-ballad Pelvic Chain, which deals with the body, its changes and its extensions. It deals with the belonging of differently affected bodies, reflects on bodily self-determination and tries to avoid trauma-dumping weight. Drawing on their own experience, the authors address bedriddenness, facing grief in hospital settings whose care, often, exceeds the boundaries of violence. They rap about the anarchy of muscles, nerves and tissue, paying a tribute to the believes about the power of one's body and its healing abilities.
