Intimate Transgressions: More than just pain

The exhibition not only explores this one aspect, but a series of universal areas such as gender identity, violence and dignity, society and fairness, morality and psychology.

"We don't just send one message," said Niamh Cunningham, an artist from Ireland and also a curator of the exhibition. "It is a complex mixture of artworks that have many layers of meanings".

Cunningham's own work, Hair Lock, is also on show. The piece is a lock and chain made from her own hair. The unique quality of the piece reflects self awareness and explores the fragility and resilience of the human spirit.
