Transmutations (the inbetweenness of things)


Transmutations (the inbetweenness of things)gathers the work of five artists who explore the subtle and intangible through a diverse range of mediums and methodologies. The works are concerned with expanding the dimension of their sources through translation and reorganization. Bringing to light the physical or natural characteristics of an object to an entity, as well as their structural relationships to memory and language, the works illustrate how transmutation goes beyond alchemy. They embody the necessity of resisting the unceasing procession of time.
