CURATORIAL SHARRING AND THOUGHTS: WE ARE NOW AFTER THE PROCESS OF SELECTING the ARTISTS" ART PIECE/S TO BE PRESENTED AT PERCOLATE GALLERY. THE PROCESS WAS DIFFICULT  SINCE ALL THE ART THAT WAS SUBMITTED WAS OUTSTANDING AND THE METAMORPHOSIS EXPERIENCES WERE GOOD AS THE ART. SELCTION WAS BASED ON THE SPACE SIZE and SHAPE, on WORKS SIZE and  REPETITION OF SIMLIAR ART PIECES AMONG ARTISTS. AS CURATOR WE WOULD LIKE TO PAY ATTENTION to POLARITIES BETWEEN WORKS AND STILL FIND OPTIONS TO DIALOUGHE THE DIFFERENT METAMORPHOSIS EXPEREINCES. WE WERE ALSO LOOKING FOR THE METAMORPHOSIS IN THE ART MAKING , HOW MATERIAL  BECOME SOMETHING NEW THAT STILL HOLDS MEANING . THIS BODY OF WORKS HOLD PEOPLES LIFE CHANGING and PEOPLES EXPERIENCES IN LIFE that  ALTERED their BEING in the moment and in LIFE. FOR SOME THE PROCESS IS STILL HAPENING in the HERE and NOW.

SEPTEMBER: SPECIAL ARTIST CALL  EXHIBITION      CURATED BY DAFNA REHAVIA & TAYA HANAUER 

ARTIST CALL


metamorphosis

"A transformation of the form or nature of a ‘thing’ or a person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means."

 
This show explores personal transformation as a result of a social and cultural experiences which may involve being dismissed, belittled, harmed, shifted into a different role, form or having a new sense of self. This call emerged from Kafka’s short story ‘Metamorphosis’: “One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that…he had been changed into a monstrous bug…”

This is a call for autobiographical artworks in all mediums, reflecting on experiences of personal transformation and radical change. Such experiences are provoked by moments and processes of irreversible alterations in one’s life, causing shifts in one’s perception of themselves and the world, and the way one interacts in their social environment. During such processes, the appearance, identity, and roles one embodies may come to foreground and occupy a central place in daily life.
