Materialised symptom, diagnosis for catharsis and aesthetic penance. The artist Peter Eccher works at the border between inexplicable phenomena, rituals and science. Focusing on strategies of mental survival, he explores taboo topics such as anger, violence and curse, through an artistic mapping of human suffering and power. Present are references from intuit mythology, with its magical figures – tupilaqs, expressed through artefacts where the material often is bone, teeth and hair in conjunction with contemporary expressions like drawing, sculpture and large-scale site-specific installations.
Opening: Saturday 21 September, 1:30 – 4pm
