Exhibition: The Fool-ectomy

This exhibition, featuring the work of Dodd MFA candidate Mac Balentine, engages with the character of the Fool as a framework for understanding shifts in cultural standards of normativity and wellness. In sixteenth-century Europe, the Fool existed as a catch-all character-type for individuals who strayed from the dominant socio-political order in which they lived, including queer people and the mentally ill. Much of the imagery that exists from this period portrays the grotesque body chastised by priests, doctors and onlookers. Difference was pathologized.
