'Transformation As Perception'

Bryant Girsch

Janos Korodi

Ana Vizcarra Rankin

Curated by Eric Preisendanz

APRIL 23 – JULY 13, 2018

All personally established knowledge of place, location, is genetically innate, offering all living beings the ability to know (or feel) where they are, and determine a course or direction based on a hierarchy of needs and desires. Navigation is resource, an activity, a requirement, and represents the passing of time as well the movement of bodies. Though humans move, migrate, and travel far differently now than at the dawn of our species, movement is, and always will be, an act of physical and perceptual transformation. The artists of “Transformation Beyond Perception” present their deep and comparative spectrum of conceptual reflection on the subject of movement and place. This 21-piece exhibition was organized by curator Eric Preisendanz for Azavea in April 2018.
