Invisible Fractures: The Enduring Trauma of Emotional Abuse, a series of digital photograph paired with audio depicting the emotional toll suffered by victims of emotional abuse, will be on display from February 3 - 26, 2017, at the Piano Craft Gallery with an opening reception on Friday, February 3rd from 7 – 10 p.m.

For this series, Tine invited survivors of emotional abuse to conceptualize visual depictions of how the abuse made them feel, in addition to creating audio recordings describing some of the abuse in detail and explaining how the abuse impacted the victims and how they were finally able to leave their abusers (in the cases where the abuse is not ongoing). “I am intimately aware of how someone can allow themselves to stay in an abusive relationship, and yet it happens every day, all over the world; this is a rarely discussed yet hyper-prevalent, severely damaging issue that deserves immediate attention” says Tine.

Because emotional abuse has been shown too often to be even more damaging longterm than other kinds of abuse, and because the absence of physical scars causes many victims to discredit their own realities, Tine has created this photographic project to empower and give closure to victims of severe emotional abuse, to offer hope and help to people currently in emotionally abusive relationships, to raise awareness about emotional abuse, and to raise money to assist victims of emotional abuse. As part of the exhibition, partner and sponsor Casa Myrna, a Boston-based domestic violence shelter founded by a female artist/abuse victim, will provide information on how to access resources dedicated to helping emotional abuse victims. Invisible Fractures: The Enduring Trauma of Emotional Abuse is sponsored by Casa Myrna, Emma’s Pizza, Lord Hobo, Batam Cider, Hojoko, Around the Corner Framing, Sofra, and Nations Photo Lab.

Gallery hours are: Fridays from 6:00-8:00 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00-5:00 p.m., and by appointment. The Piano Craft Gallery, a historic Boston landmark at 793 Tremont Street, Boston, Massachusetts, is dedicated to offering thought-provoking and engaging exhibitions. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
