Indigestion: Breaking conventional understanding

Indigestion isn’t just about food. It’s about how we absorb life. From infancy, we take in the world around us, forming a sense of self that’s influenced by society’s mirror. As we grow, we navigate the symbolic norms that define us, questioning and digesting new ideas. ‘Cultural indigestion’ can happen when our personal beliefs clash with social expectations, leading to moments of discomfort or enlightenment. It’s not just about fitting in; it’s about understanding our place in the world and how we hold the new and unfamiliar, attuned to its feeling. This exhibition invites you to resist easy consumption; the idea that indigestion is more than a physical reaction—it’s a way to sustain a more complex relationship with the world.
