Shane Dedman

As part of Women’s Month, WonderRoot celebrated by unveiling wom*n and gender non-conforming exhibition: The Gathering. Women’s Month brings recognition to the dynamic work that women have and continue to accomplish in our lives through acknowledging the spirit of collaboration, communion and activation.

The Gathering highlighted the work of 8 Atlanta artists and served as a communal space for cis women, trans women, non-binary and gender non-conforming people to come together and create a safe-space for dialogue, creativity and healing. 


This piece Dedman performed is titled Tension Score and is the artist's visual interpretation of unprocessed memory stored within the body of a trauma survivor. They perform and make work to inform the process of surmounting PTSD. Trauma is stored in the body without consent until it is released.
