mn The invention, reinvention, and discovery of Gods or the Divine are not just matters of linguistic and cultural shifts, they are tantamount to changing our experience of the divine, and thus, the space of the divine. Each relation made with the infinite is another path towards it, carving reciprocal paths between the seen and unseen. The ineffable will always be out of reach, but the space we make to connect with it is precisely the invention of the Gods we are prepared to understand. And with every further development, we create different vistas to the ever receding horizon line of absolute understanding.
Gathered here are artists that begin by taking the world as it is, caring for it both in its beauty and its violence. They make works that transcend their parts, and illuminate that inheritance and history are inevitable and important to honor, but are never ultimately defining. We are the stuff of the world – all of it – and yet from it will come endless invention.
