The Inconstant World features nine international artists whose work examines the relationship between perception and abstraction, focusing on visibility and illegibility as artistic strategies. With the body, language, and the experience of time as points of departure, the exhibition engages the limitations of representation and images as sites of interpretation. Each artist uses a different mode of abstraction; works in the exhibition consider the incomplete image, or attempt to represent that which cannot be captured or clearly articulated. The result complicates the viewing process, and encourages a closer look to unpack the work’s meaning.
