Images from Lissa Rivera‘s series “Beautiful Boy” will be on display in the upcoming exhibition “Ablutions of the Tongue” at Rundetaarn in Copenhagen. The exhibition was initiated by Kristina Steinbock and co-curated by Louise Lassen Iversen, and will be on view from February 29 – March 29, 2020.

The art exhibition “Ablution of the Tongue” is a transdisciplinary group exhibition which deals with the concept of othering, body and identity.

Othering can be defined as a set of dynamics, processes, and structures that engender marginality and persistent inequality across any of the full range of human differences. Dimensions of othering includes, but are not limited to, religion, sex, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status (class), disability, sexual orientation or any socially significant marker or characteristic.

The exhibition will explore conditions under which processes of othering seem to arise and in which specific group-based identities become socially significant. The artists will work through these complex networks of stories, addressing visions of other possible worlds than the norm where emotional resonance is used as evidence through the power of poetry, aesthetics and fiction.

Participating artists: Sian Kristoffersen (DK), Stella Geppert (DE), Katrin Ströbel (DE), Kristina Steinbock (DK), Lissa Rivera (US), Linda Lazer (N), Peter Birkholm and Michael Schiøler (DK).
