About JE T’EMB(AR)RASSE |
Discomfort, uneasiness, or cringing….Embarrassment encompasses an entire spectrum – it often manifests itself both physically and psychologically and as an emotion, it makes us question things. It is also very human, irrational and absurd, often painful but also playful. It could vary from slapstick, over indiscretion, misunderstanding, sexual desire, to political (in)correctness. The exhibition is about all that – about shame, stuttering, stumbling; about unwritten social rules and the humoristic potential of it all.
