Deanna Templeton Presents Scratch Your Name On My Arm

If Deanna Templeton’s photos show anything, then it demonstrates the blurred boundaries between wanting to belong to something and subjugating yourself to something, between a subjectivist and an objectivist body culture. There is always the zone of tension between free will which, on the one hand, impels the individual to have an autograph or tattoo added, either from a purely aesthetic motive or wanting to belong, and, on the other hand, the risk of being ‘subjugated’ by the other person. The more recent shift in autography towards the application of business logos, by means of sprays or imprints, or in the
form of stickers, summons up new questions about the cultural reality in which these rituals take place.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with the same title and articles by Stijn Huijts and Ed Templeton.

The director of SCHUNCK*, is pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition on Friday 21 May at 5 p.m.
No speeches, just drinks, live music and the opportunity to have a chat with the artist herself, Deanna Templeton!
