NARS Foundation is pleased to present The process of calculating one’s position, an exhibition featuring the works of our 2019 Season IV artists-in-residence.
The process of calculating one’s position can follow multiple directions. The steps are simple repetitive acts like breathing, observing, walking, collecting both images and information, following patterns, manipulating materials, and creating personal and even obsessive rituals that exist by carefully perceiving, adapting and repeating.
The artists in this exhibition articulate their positions in reference to the world —in whichever latitude and meridian they exist— and translate it into poetic expressions that intend to harvest a reciprocal exchange of ideas built on differences. The quotidien actions become part of a ceremony where the historical, the comedic, the ironic, the political, the contradictory, the physical, and conceptual coincide in line.
