Accidents examines the margins of meaning or 意 and investigates the potentials that lie beyond the original intention of the artist. The making of art often relies on the creator to remain faithful to a predetermined production process in the hope that it would result in something meaningful in the end. This exhibition deviates from such a set narrative and focuses on bringing out the subconscious and imaginary aspects of art. It questions to what extent is the artist conscious of his original intention.
In this exhibition, five artists from different generations and 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.
