There is value in not knowing, in being unsure.
When you can’t name something, can you still know what it looks like, what it smells like, feels like, sounds like?
With this question in mind the exhibition’s four artists deploy objects, videos, and discrete noises that act as mediums of experience outside the structure of language but beyond the bounds of the merely visual. Their varied interests lie not in things that have soundtracks; that work as an accompaniment to a purely visual experience, but situations where sound is integral to the structure and composition of the piece. These things could not exist without sound and can’t help but make some auditory discharge. The sound element of this work resists quick categorization and allows things to remain mysterious a few moments longer.
There is value in not knowing and it’s ok to not be certain just what that value is.
