THE INVISIBLE WOUNDS I
‘The Invisible Wounds I’ is limited editions photograph by the Austrian artist Jaqueline Vanek. This photograph, a self-portrait of Jaqueline, is part of a series visualizing the invisible wounds left by psychological violence.
“Today we know that psychological violence can leave wounds as deep, or even greater, then physical violence. We usually associate psychological abuse with screams, verbal humiliations, threats and derisive teasing. However, there is a type of psychological violence that can do a lot of damage and usually goes unnoticed: emotional coldness or indifference. The problem is that emotional coldness generates frustration due to the lack of response and involvement of the other. It can also make us feel confused and even guilty, and we will feel increasingly alone and misunderstood. The person who is systematically ignored and whose emotional needs are undervalued will plunge into the deep pit of depression.” — Jaqueline Vanek
