Beyond Semantics: Group Show
BEYOND SEMANTICS: Stepping away from the everyday, curated by Alysia Yip-Hoi
Semantic Satiation is a term employed in literature to describe the loss of meaning through overuse of a word. Art, images and ideas are so often repeated that they achieve a state of homogeneity. In a sea of similar offerings, this show seeks to set ourselves apart with this unique selection of works. The collection of these artists seek to remove the habitual banality of everyday objects. The relationship that today’s viewer has with contemporary art is driven by choice. How we choose to spend our time and gaze dictates the relationship with our environment. As we spend more time in a singular environment, the surroundings we choose become ever more impactful. When we surround ourselves with works that profoundly resonate within us, the meaning can never be lost.
