Scars: Memories of the Skin, online, 27 November–13 December 2020, free entry - Visit now
Communicating different meanings, lived experiences and emotional changes, scars are a script on our bodies. And just like translated texts, they can also be interpreted in different ways.
Through photography, artist Ngozi Ugochukwu uses her lived experience to explore the scars on her own body. Every mark or blemish represents a story or time in her life.
From tribal markings received as a baby to burns used in traditional Nigerian medicine, Ugochukwu explores the language of her body. From hospital operations, accidents and everyday marks and scratches, Scars: Memories of the Skin explores what is written on the body.
Scars: Memories of the Skin will be available on recurring dates throughout the festival, from November 27 until December 13.
