Exhibition | Very Natural Actions

The value, social function, and role of art change with time. Contemporary art has shifted towards life itself, away from “art for art’s sake”, where art is viewed in isolation as objects of pure aesthetic inquiry. Artists are thrust into the world and in turn create their own worlds; the persistent focus on the surfaces of artworks breaks down, unveiling deeper meanings. Very Natural Actions encourages viewers not to linger on the surfaces of works but to seek out that gem of a tree within the forest of forms and meanings — one that resonates with one’s experiences, allowing artworks to serve as bridges between artists and viewers. Beneath the artworks lie worlds and dimensions ordinarily hidden; such reflexive questioning holds out greater possibilities in the viewing of artworks.
