About the event
When the umbilical cord is cut, the biological bond between the baby and the mother is removed. Simultaneously, our bodies begin to weave new connections with the world, rendering us not solitary beings but a fragment of a complex, intricate system that has been beyond our comprehension.
Ties shape our narratives, but what stories do they tell? Are our relationships with entities on the planet, including living and non-living beings, sustainable and harmonious? Or do they reflect a distorted and anthropocentric view of the world? Can we reframe and reshape these ties to build a better future for all?
Ties That Cannot Be Unbound invites you to explore the interconnectedness of spirituality and physicality through art in both new and traditional media. What ties are impossible to unbind, and why? Does art have the power to challenge and transform our understanding of these ties? Step into the exhibition space, constructed on a virtual platform with shapes of organic creatures that becomes a habitat for multimedia artworks. Discover a spectrum of ties that encompass diverse forms of connections, each occupying a distinct position on the spectrum. Are these ties merely threads in a larger network, or do they reflect something deeper about our relationship with the world?
