What does it mean, to have a body and to form an identity? This group exhibition addresses this question in numerous ways: through photography, installation, film and painting – and by artists across three generations.

Artists: Andreea Cioran • Izabella Gustowska • Ren Hang • Eckart Hahn • Natascha Stellmach

Stellmach’s floor to ceiling installation of a selection of photographs and testimonials from The Letting Go** reveal participants’ oft-fragile and frequently powerful relationship towards their bodies and being. Amidst all the wrinkled paper images and text, the one framed work ‘Shame’ also goes beyond the personal in its role as a wound, by taking on a current and culturally political relevance. Susanne Massmann

**The Letting Go is an ongoing project in which Stellmach guides participants through an artistic-somatic process, which harnesses the act of tattooing as part of a holistic experience
