Exhibition Opening / Sanctum

  • Big Medium 916 Springdale Rd, Bldg 2 #101 Austin United States (map)

Sanctum brings together a collection of international artists to present work in conversation around the concept of genetic memory. Long fascinated with the idea that we inherit not only DNA but fear, habits, triumph, trauma and love—among other things from our ancestors—Wendt has gathered these artists to explore how this affects our collective cultural consciousness. Hailing from diverse practices and working in video, installation, photography, painting and sculpture, this group of work includes an excerpt from Wendt’s latest film The Memory Inheritance, which she filmed this past summer in Detroit.
