The exhibitions cover different segments of the project. In the interference of documentary and artistic material, through the medium of artistic installation, the exhibition links symbolic and real experiences of the perception of female trauma. Combining the researches into a syncretistic medium it includes and heightens the sensory dimension in the processes of cognition, instructing us about the inconstancy, particularity and canonical nature of knowledge and builds a sensory historical narrative. With its participative part, exhibitions actively involve visitors in the production of work.
