Cotterrell's photographic works, Sightlines I and Supernumerary were shown as part of the Trauma exbibition at Science Gallery Dublin

Trauma showcased a range of works by artists, scientists and designers that connected with the emotional upheaval of trauma on physical, biological and psychological levels, exploring the ways in which trauma affects the brain, the body and the national psyche.

The exhibition further examined the post-traumatic flipside of healing -- physiologically, emotionally and socially -- and explored the ways in which buildings, bodies, artworks and stories record the traumas of our past and our understanding of trauma’s lasting effect; sometimes trauma can make you forget, sometimes trauma means you can't forget.

Trauma was co-curated by Ian Brunswick, Brian Cass, Caitriona LeahyShane O’Mara and Daniel Glaser.
