In this exhibition, three artists from different cultural backgrounds experiment with different materials and mediums to reveal the relational aspects of art.
Accidents celebrates the autonomous and alchemic qualities of artistic practice; a series of accidents turns into an alternative reality not bound by any specific cultural or political circumstances. Using nature as a reference, these artists incorporate natural phenomena into their practices and surrender control to a far greater force. They translate what is inherently idealistic into something artificial by situating viewers in an ambiguous space.
Preoccupied with the unpredictable properties of different materials, they are all interested in the possibilities of automatism, working laboriously with non-figurative means of expression to reflect on what is left by our conspicuous daily consumption. In short, their common ulterior motive is to convey higher spiritual ideals (意境) through their art to deepen our metaphysical understanding of society at large.
