How can we imagine Silence and its various forms of embodiment? Can Silence be considered as a Political statement? Sites of Embodied Silence is an attempt to look at Silence as a response to contemporary Political and Social issues. In the age of Political Correctness, Silence has become one of the most mainstream reactions, something which raises questions on the recontextualization of concepts and acts of Resistance.

Comment peut-on imaginer le Silence et ses diverses manifestations? Le Silence peut-il être considéré comme une déclaration politique? Sites of Embodied Silence tente d’évaluer le rôle du Silence en réponse aux problèmes politiques et sociaux contemporains. À l’ère de la Rectitude Politique, le silence est devenu l’une des réactions les plus courantes, ce qui soulève des questions sur la recontextualisation du concept et sur les actes de Résistance.

Entanglement explores our most basic bonds. Naturally occurring networks. Cycles and synapses. Currents and nuclei. Connections that give order to the chaos. The exhibiting artists enliven the senses, binding the delicate to the electrifying.

“Painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations.”

-Paul Cézanne
