Following the success of our inaugural 2019-20 edition, we are delighted to announce our next show entitled Not Applicable. Not applicable stands for the appreciation of value that is currently not focused in the spotlight of society’s attention. The objective is to challenge our daily lives and create conversations on the things that are supposed to free us but end up enslaving us. We live in an era where the need to do things quickly doesn't allow us to pause and reflect. We search for instant gratification, ending up losing control to first line actions and reactions. Our attention is switched, reducing our efficiency and skills, making us unable to concentrate on one thing at a time. The selected artists are exploring various ways of challenging current norms with works that interrupt our impulsive behaviours and suggest new approaches or bring back traditional ways of working that have been faded during the years.
