"Palimptexts: Invisibilization and Acts of Surfacing" is a group exhibition by
The No Matter What Collective. These photo-based art works surface aspects of
our culture that are denied, unacknowledged and thereby become invisibilized.


Photographer/filmmaker rena del pieve gobbi, photographers Janet Sadel and Bobbi Sue Smith, and photographer/performance artist Karen Moe realize neglected spaces in a Vancouver context, through the sexed and gendered body and, in so doing, voice some of the silences at the core of patriarchal culture. The project addresses how the cultural and ideological inscriptions that construct social subjects are intrinsically informed by the corresponding privilege and neglect in a hierarchical ontology.
