Hannah Laycock is excited to announce that she will be exhibiting a selection of photos from her ‘Perceiving Identity’ series for ‘The Venerable Body’ ('Het haperende lichaam’) exhibition at CBK Zuitdoost, Amsterdam in January 2018, Saturday, 20th January until Saturday 31st of March.
'The Vulnerable Body’ is an exhibition of artworks about the physical limitations of the body and/or the impact of emotional distress. In this exhibition, ‘Illness’ or impairment is not always understood as something depressing or negative, but as an experience which can’t be ignored in everyday life. Physical and emotional suffering is something everyone is affected by at some point in their life, so this group show is about what is both familiar and strange or unexpected.
The thirteen (international) artists participating in The Vulnerable Body make (often) intimate work about bodily or emotional differences that are very much part of their lives or someone close to them. For some artists in the show, making art has a therapeutic effect. For others it is a way to visualise the reality of living with their own or others’ susceptible, unreliable bodies.
Curators: Renske de Jong (CBK Southeast) and Siobhan Wall (artist / curator). For both, the theme Ziekte has personal relevance. They specifically searched for artists who have experienced the spiritual and emotional vulnerabilities themselves or up close and have this reflected in their work.
