Inhabitation of Violence
Invisible, innate, and formless, violence is manifested in various manners regardless of time, place, relationships, and circumstances. Sometimes it is accompanied with reasons – justifications which are fit and adjusted by the perpetrators, or by those perceiving through logic, politics, psychology, philosophy, et cetera. Other times, it is formed without a name or explanation, nevertheless leaving the same impact and traces to those at its disposal.
Threading from different parts of the world, Inhabitation of Violence is a crossing point for artists Stella Chen, Katya Petetskaya, and Melanie Coutts. Through unique perspectives and practices, each work shines light to the multilayered act and impact of violence – confronting its many forms and relations to both human and non-human entities, the subconscious, and the forces within ourselves
