The result of gathering such a distinct set of artists for a group show can be
puzzling. A puzzle tangled in the multiplicity of ideas and mediums, which
share the same platform. The end of the thread lies in the contemporary
context of art making in which these artists work.
Between the Lines invites the viewer to unravel the puzzle, to establish
connections between the 14 artists. The invitation is to read the works so that
their apparent self-containment is expanded and discovered as each work
relates to others in the show. By filling the interpretive gap to which Between
the Lines refers, viewers themselves connect the political, spiritual, formal,
personal and metaphysical lines manifested in the show.
Thus the lines of connections between artists are not established in advance as
definitive or rigid. By creatively interpreting the elusive space we call
Between the Lines, the viewer draws new lines of connections, momentarily
inhabiting the role of the curator to create meaning.
