Beautiful Distress presents: There is no better me
ART PROGRAM BY BEAUTIFUL DISTRESS HOUSE
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
In the exhibition There is no Better Me, Nina Glockner and Sachi Miyachi bring together Japanese memorabilia, cultural artifacts, personal anecdotes and architectural fragments from their artist-in-residence period at Fukuroda Psychiatric Hospital in 2019. The title not only functions as a ‘ note to self’, but also as a provocation, problematizing our imperative to self-improvement and pathologizing the ways in which behaviors that refuse to comply are pathologised. At the same time, There is no Better Me acts as a reminder to ground yourself in the present rather than clinging to a nostalgic past or an idealized future.
Beautifull Distress house is opened on Friday’s and Thursday’s from 11:00 untill 18:00 and on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 untill 18:00.
