A phantom limb: the sensation that an amputated or missing limb is still attached to the body and is moving appropriately with other body parts.
The Phantom Limb consists of a selection of works by Greek and Chilean artists. The exhibition is brought together at a time when in Greece the whole nation is protesting against the capitalistic reorganization of the country and in an almost exclusively privatized Chile people are out on the streets demanding free education and a real welfare state. We put forward the interaction of ten artists and one documentarian using these circumstances as a starting point of convergence.
In the epicenter of a polyphony of themes and mediums, are the artists and the solutions they turn to, caught between the dichotomy of their function as social beings and their own authorial practice.
