> DESCRIPTION

Control Group is an investigation into the individual artistic process and the risks  taken when directed to work outside one’s chosen medium(s). With the metaphor of the fish out of water in place, each artist will communicate their ideas and aesthetics through unfamiliar means, allowing new variables to emerge.

We intend to challenge the comfort zones artists sometimes inhabit by asking them to relinquish a degree of control over their creativity, while perhaps exercising it more completely than usual, invigorating the dialogue between artist and viewer. Control Group is an invitation to make mistakes. While this may seem counterintuitive, we see the threshold between success and failure as a
space for progress.

Partisan Gallery, NOMA Gallery, and fourteen artists of different disciplines have come together for this project, co-curated by Chris Fallon and Jasmin Lim.
