Un Quiet Bodies Exhibition

Friday, Apr 24th, 2015 - Monday, May 25th, 2015
5:00pm

Gallery Gachet
88 East Cordova Street

Un Quiet Bodies is an exhibition of new work by Aja Rose Bond & Chandra Melting Tallow.

The exhibition delves into the complex realities of the physiology of trauma, self-awareness, and levels of ability impacting one’s capacity to survive in a society designed for the “able-bodied”. Bond’s work emphasizes the relationship between work, leisure and self-care when accounting for physical and mental limitations. Melting Tallow explores the implications of ability through the lens of colonial and intergenerational trauma and its physical manifestations in the body.
