Trauma Clown – a visual art exhibition by Vivek Shraya

April 1 – July 1 | 2021

Oppression and commodification meet in visual artist, author and musician Vivek Shraya’s photo exhibition, Trauma Clown. In a cultural climate where laughter and pain go hand in hand, Vivek Shraya shuffles through a deck of trauma cards, exploring what type of sad clown we embody when we externalize our suffering. Her work invites viewers to question the mediums of modern spectacle and the depths of our appetite.

This exhibition is part of the 2021 Capture Photography Festival Selected Exhibition Program.
