Back of My Hand
The hand is one of the most symbolised parts of the human body, an archetype for talking about theory and practice, thought and materialisation. Back of My Hand is based on the way different artists work on the poetic and political potential of the hand, and its relationship with certain dynamics involved in the visibility of images. The exhibition presents a series of works in which the hand appears with an active, revealing or performative character, reflecting on a space between the visible and what resists the intelligible.
