The exhibition is a gallery extension and broadening of the Body in which I Live section at New Horizon. The filmmakers deal with its various aspects; Inner Life: The Bump concentrates on the key one.
The topic of the exhibition is corporeality multiplied, the moment the body transcends itself, the uncanny state which is impossible to tame and is blessed at the same time – Inner Life: The Bump is about pregnancy. We confront images created by the cinema with those of visual artists. Pregnancy is sometimes used as a metaphor of the creative process. We undertake to refresh this cliché, treating the gallery as a symbolic uterus, in which a discourse is born amid blood, tears, amniotic fluids, biopolitics, physiology and mysticism, medicine, astrology and cosmogony, perennial archetypes and current disputes, patriarchy and feminism, horrors and miracles of internal life.
