A Wound in Time

In the overarching silence, and opacity that trauma gives us – we are faced with the seemingly impossible tasking of waiting.

A Wound in Time is a virtual and physical exhibition, consisting of alumni, staff and friends of the UFS Fine Arts Department. These artists guide viewers through a journey which confronts the internal unrest that follows directly after a time of hardship. Addressing issues of trauma, loss, a global pandemic, or even discontentment – the exhibition unfolds the liminal space in between the happening of these issues and the process of recovery. Each work serving as a checkpoint in the voyage between hurt and healing; they become memorial for the temporary silence and reflection.

We are faced will the gentle reminder that a wound in time has occurred – it does however signal the end of an impact and the inevitable beginning of restoration.
