You are cordially invited to the opening of Double Bind in the Living Art Museum Völvufell 13-21, 111 Reykjavík, a group show featuring new works by nine artists
Rupert, center for Art and Education (Lithuania), in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Art / KHiO (Norway) and The Living Art Museum (Iceland) present Double Bind, a traveling exhibition, lecture series and publication, spanning a period of 6 months, 5 locations and multiple states of mind.
The inaugural show opened in Vilnius on October 14th, 2015. It then traveled to Pabradė, Visaginas, Oslo and now to Reykjavik.
Double Bind aims to restore a sense of political agency to private psychological practices associated with failure. Starting from depression and looking more widely into emotion economies, artists were invited to fail and be vulnerable.
A confessional tone was assumed by works, architecture and curators alike; a tone regarded as an insurgent force rallying against congealed understandings of psychological pathology and illness and the language of seemingly dispassionate argument in which these are commonly expressed.
