Shame

Exhibition at The Bomb Factory Foundation London, UK 2018

 

A den made from black molton suspended from the ceiling and placed in a corner of the gallery with two single channel speakers inside playing a series of completed chapters using sounds and monologue. The monologues were aiming to present aspects of shame in the form of inner dialogue, frantic anxious ramble, poetry and repetition as means to explore the emotion of shame

According to neuroscientists, shame arises from a line of communicating nerve cells running from the primal part of the brain to the guts and the stomach. The line of communication is malleable. The more shame the more efficient the communication and the easier it is for the affect to arise.
