/LIMINAL/, a group exhibition Felipe Pantone, Adam Hurwitz, Sei Smith, Thanarat Asvasirayothin and Boldizsar Szenteczki, curated by Jennifer Yeung.
This exhibition expresses the thing that turns into its opposite when pushed to its extreme. Once a certain limit is reached, a change is inevitable. Along these lines, the exhibition captures the liminal moment of the switch and explore the different forms of extremity on both sides. The artworks showcase this inevitable change in perspective. Moreover, each thing in the universe contains different sides of meanings when context changes perception changes, which also includes art. Each piece holds its different layers of its purpose and meaning, once the surrounding context changes, perception changes. Artworks that are showcase at the exhibition ties with the topic of /Liminal/.
This idea is based upon Chinese Proverb wù jí bì fǎn from Lü Shi Chun Qiu, the principle of enantiodromia that was first introduced by the psychiatrist Carl Jung and the concept Yin-yang from Taoist philosophy. Each explains where extremes lead to change.
