Visual Experiences of Signs and Metamorphosis

Visual Experiences of Signs and Metamorphosis
#Exhibitions

Ten renowned artists from varying corners of the Asian continent build, through their works, a poetic voyage of forms and metamorphosis. Visitors move through an imaginary ritual itinerary comprised of numerous artistic languages, mediums and acts, an itinerary that casts doubt on the certainty of narrative, that provokes reflections and induces one to interpret art as divinatory signs and vice versa. The narrative voices of the exhibition tell tales of metamorphosis from India, China, Singapore, Lebanon, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan, an international dialogue in which artists explore the dimensions beyond the Earth, of journeys, of ritual and magic through highly varied expressive languages. The result is an exhibition which, conceptually, is more akin to a large international artistic gathering in which each Nation is called upon to represent a specific theme, a sort of mini Asian biennale on the theme of metamorphosis. Rituals of Signs and Metamorphosis represents a visual space for reflection and a chance to return to ancestral forms of representing the world, offering a possibility to reconnect with nature and a temporary departure from modern society.
