until 30.06. | #1992ARTatBerlin | Galerie Deschler shows from 09th May 2018 the exhibition “Innocent” by the artist Patricia Wallner.
Patricia Waller’s new exhibition “Innocent” is dedicated to the various forms of violence against the weakest within our society, against children. These images and reports are far too familiar to us from the world’s areas of crisis: hunger, traumas, displacement, children soldiers, rape, sexual slavery, disfiguration, and death overlay the manifold other forms of emotional and physical violence that are also far too frequently present in our own society.
In the countless wars of the present age children are usually the first victims: collateral damage that is as a rule cynically accepted by all parties involved in a conflict. Still without physical or emotional resilience and accordingly helpless, they suffer grievous emotional and physical injuries affected their entire lives. The sense of caretaking that is inherent in all humans with regard to children makes these images of their suffering particularly unbearable, especially with the background of their perceived innocence. Waller’s works are bound to affect us – they force us to confront a theme that is within the responsibility of every one of us.
