2017 Practical Masochism Exhibition Laboratory Helsinki

"It can be said that there is something intrinsically masochistic about art making. But what about works that take this further, works that deal with things too close, too private, too sticky? Practical Masochism is not a show about ‘pain work’ as such; instead of just flirting with the iconography of masochism, it approaches the topic from a more emotional perspective and asks what the possibilities and limitations of a masochistic mode of working are. What are the risks?"
Practical Masochism curated by Mariliis Rebane and Iona Roisin.
