FACTT 2019 – (BE) COMING – An Exhibition of Experimental Contemporary Art about
the impermanence of becoming permanent
A transformation is an extreme, radical change.
The unavoidability of changes is a constant awareness we have throughout our lives.
We may not always be aware of it, and often just expend so much energy avoiding this “law of nature” that we forget that it exists and start thriving for stability.
(BE) COMING is an exhibition about change, about the impossibility of not changing, about the perpetual impermanence and the process of becoming. As we become aware of the need to change in our world, on our planet in our lives it feels necessary to remember that life is a dynamic process. That life is a consistent process of transformation and adaptation, of becoming. Art, more than any other human endeavour is a reflection of this aspect of life and therefore the best way to remember the process of being something different, something else, something more, or something less, even while becoming ourselves.
This year’s FACTT exhibition is composed of a series of works from different artists that makes us stop and reminds us of the process of becoming.
