以藝術探討性別暴力 | VIOLENCE OF GENDER

在「表演社會:性別的暴力」展覽中,參展藝術家挑戰對女人的象徵式閹割,重新掌握被褫奪已久的力量。藝術家消融了少年期的框架,顛覆規管姿勢、語音、儀態、欲望的法則。

Violence of a structural nature is no less brutal than its physical counterpart. The everyday presence of structural violence causes a mute paralysis. The definitions of gender based on symbolic, cultural, and physical boundaries are as hard and clear as they are painful to experience.

她們由此發展出反敘事,對抗家庭體制及以異性戀為中心的社會。他們用「母乳」在性向與繁殖的範疇裡劃出一片領域,又展示繁殖、科技與剝削性是如何糾纏難分。藝術品揭開隱藏在性別的正常建構下的暴力。藝術家帶著自重、自信、想像力、幽默感與痛楚,與作品一同跨越界限,令不同的新景象能夠實現。

Upbringing, cultural attribution, existing power structures, social codes, religious traditions, and biological manifestations unite to form a violent normative framework that governs body, sexuality, identity, and behaviour.
