In Frames of War, Judith Butler discusses how some lives are regarded as grievable and others are not and how, through acts of unreadability, specific lives are removed from the norms of what constitutes a valuable life, or seen to be a life at all.

A Particular Being is Lumina Collective’s major exhibition showcasing new work exploring notions of grievability, memory and recognition in an unstable world. Through their eight distinct lenses, Lumina reimagines diverse and discrete lives poised at times of personal or global unease- with each response a reckoning and an intervention into acts of forgetting. Each response is a reckoning, creating a pluralism of voices* which both question and acknowledge what it means to simply live and be in the world.

*Amos Gebhardt discusses the pluralism of voices, lives and bodies in their work, we acknowledge hearing this term from them.
