Traumas are both personal and impersonal, physical and psychological, short-lived and long-lasting. Sometimes only visible through the lens of a microscope, their impact can be both unique and universal.
This exhibition, curated by Dr Jonathan Hutt and Bojana Popovic, attempts to understand the various manifestations of trauma both natural and man-made; revealing the intimate experience of those who live with trauma while also investigating perceptions of sometimes concealed mental distress. The artists involved in this project employ a diversity of approaches, charting the full dimensions of trauma from the micro-molecular to those on a global environmental scale.
