The collateral exhibition to the festival’s Focus:The Body I Live In, which explores various corporeal experiences in cinema. In the gallery, we are looking closely at just one but crucial body part: a bump!
Inner Life is a show about the womb life and its tricky conditions: physical, emotional, political and philosophical. A moment in life, when the body doubles and exceeds itself. A condition almost impossible to comprehend, blessed for some, shocking for others. Time of secret expectations and wild projections. Pure potentiality. An experience, as much corporeal as mental, most thrilling, challenging and alien of all.
We confront film pregnancies with the imagination of visual artists. Refreshing the age old metaphor of conceiving as a creative process. In a gallery, which will become a symbolic uterus - a discourse made of blood and tears, mysticism and astrology, archetypes and biopolitics, patriarchy and feminism - will be born. The horrors and miracles of the inner life.
