Post Institutional Stress Disorder (PISD) is a diagnosis that unfolds as a cumulative group exhibition throughout 2018. On the opening day, the exhibition will consist of only one work, but when it closes just under 10 months later the exhibition space will be packed full of works comprising sculpture, photography, video, paintings, etc. The title of the exhibition is a play on PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a psychological disorder that can develop as a consequence of one or more traumatic experiences. The exhibition is, however, not concerned with traumatic experiences related to war or other instances of extreme stress, but to our experiences with institutions and how they influence our lives. The works in the exhibition explore our interaction with state institutions and the sense of powerlessness one might experience when confronted with such systems.
