“Without the weight given by a wound consciously realized, [one] will lead a provisional life.” — Robert Bly
The Gift In The Wound highlights the work of artists who have confronted their fears, traumas, and shadows, and emerged on the other side with unexpected insights, treasures, and talents to share with and enrich their communities. The wounds explored vary from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual, and the media from paint, fabric, glass, and beyond. Each work celebrates an enduring process of transformation reflected in nature, in myth, and in our bodies.
The Gift in the Wound is Noah Phillips‘ curatorial debut. Before beginning his residency at Flux Factory, where his work has focused on the intersections of folk ritual and innovative understandings of psychological “plurality,” Noah was working as a Peer Specialist in the New York City’s public mental health system. He is also a Licensed Master of Social Work and an organizer with the Institute for the Development of Human Arts, a training institute for transformative models of mental health.
*The exhibition will take place at Flux Factory’s Garage Bay Gallery. In response to COVID-19, all visitors are required to wear a face mask and follow social distancing guidelines. We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment.*
