Beta Blockers is an exhibition of wearable/tactile sculptural installations exploring political, fleshy and spatial resistances. It is important that acts of resistance and refusal are remembered as acts upon or with bodies, not simply historical accounts – this exhibition seeks to create linkages and leave traces upon the bodies that these objects encounter.

Momentary obliterations, meditations and creations of a body. These practices play an important part in Ohni’s life and function as a survival strategy as a chronically ill and disabled transgender person. These works explore ritual practices that create a collapsing of stable categories into a production of new truths.
