DESCRIPTION

Josee Bienvenu is pleased to present There is no such thing as a good decision, an exhibition featuring fourteen international artists with works ranging from 1980 to 2014. An investigation into the intersection of language, politics, and desire, the works in the exhibition trade in the interface between body and architecture, interior and exterior, public displays and private activities.

Mapping the land between physical and emotional geography, the artists in the exhibition touch upon the fragile nature of communication, exchange, and relationships. Representations are layered and bonds are forged. Obliteration and reconstruction characterize some of the works. Text is turned into image by means of fragmentation, transliteration or repetition, simultaneously creating and eradicating meaning.
