ABOUT THE SHOW
Hexagonally (2020) brings together six artists under current global conditions, each forming one side of this shape. Social distancing rules put these individuals equally apart, forming a repeating hexagon. The hexagon, here, speaks of compact strength, unity and connection.
For this show, the artists had to reorient physical installations into virtual digital artworks. This exhibition is a mark of resilience through working together and taking an active step to adapt to new circumstances. The pandemic defines the beginning of the new decade but how it defines us is yet to be decided. Thus, Hexagonally exhibition spans reflections on:
how we see and experience ourselves,
how we meet the natural world and assign meaning,
our awareness of modern warfare techniques,
how we protect heritage,
envision our lives and the future.
