The Infinite Line is a 3-person exhibition that will take place in TACTIC gallery, Cork in May 2014. It will be accompanied by a once-off performance piece, 120 limited edition publications and a mini-symposium: The Infinite Line: A Search for the Unknown.
‘We actually form the world at every instant, although we're not cognitively aware of that.’
Robert Irwin, from Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees.
Our knowing is through our individual perception of things and ultimately not knowing is the only thing that we can be certain of. This exhibition is an empirical questioning of things beyond our understanding and the nature of knowledge itself. It deals with knowledge as an unstable ground and precarious truth.
This show takes as its genesis ideas of spacial and temporal slippage and the unknown. The artists work loosely through the medium of drawing in the tri-dimensions and the experiential qualities of light.
