This Temporary Matter

Taking its lead from vanitas and memento mori concerns, This Temporary Matter further explores these ideas by bringing together ephemeral works created in materials that also have a definite life span. The exhibition space will therefore be ever-changing as the show's duration serves as a ticking clock for each work's actual birth and death.  Each piece's use of interesting/experimental mediums will challenge traditional notions of material choice and longevity in meaning as well as substance, and by using both form and concept to examine the absurdity/humour/excitement/sadness/wonder/freedom/truth in the fact that everything has an ultimate end point, visitors will physically and philosophically be placed in the present to celebrate the unique moment happening right here, right now.
