The existence of sunspots may prove that even the sun, such an unchanging and stable reference point for the entire universe, may at times exhibit an unexpected variability in its form. Some people view sunspots as heralds of imminent disasters or cataclysms and believe that an increased solar activity may have a negative impact on our emotional condition. Crisis situations which involve waiting for the inevitable may result in either indifference or heightened activity. We might observe rational people acting erratically and those with depressive tendencies behaving rationally. The exhibition “Sunspots” features works by female artists who speak of loneliness in times of crisis brought about by intimate emotions or external circumstances, and of inevitable turning points in people’s lives. Attempts to create certain rituals as forms of self-therapy help to purify and free oneself from accumulated emotions. Painful experiences become the impetus for the creative process and the inspiration to continually expand the artistic practice. By exploring their own bodies and personal experiences, and by recalling their traumas and discovering herstories, the artists bring to light the thesis that man, despite destructive tendencies towards their own kind and the natural world, still remains nature’s most perfect creation.
