With : Thelma Cappello, Xinyi Cheng, Nathanaëlle Herbelin, Liverpool Black Women Filmmakers & Rehana Zaman, Georgia Lucas-Going, Adrian Mabileau Ebrahimi Tajadod, Dala Nasser, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Hamid Shams, Patrick Staff.

Lateral Recovery Position is a col­lec­­tive exhi­bi­­tion which ques­­tions the place of vio­­lence and con­flict in social and polit­ical spheres. The artists explore the con­nec­­tion between affects and vio­­lence, with an emphasis on how it is embodied in sin­gular and inti­­mate nar­ra­­tives. 

The art­works pre­sented here fuel much needed con­ver­sa­tions between artists influ­enced by queer and fem­i­nist theory, in the con­text of a French scene that strug­gles to adapt those con­cepts and prac­tices.

This exhibition is supported by Fluxus Art Projects, the Franco-British funds for contemporary art.
