What do we know and what we do believe
The exhibition is concerned with habitual ways of seeing: with what we know (the experience of reality through our senses, specifically sight) and by what we believe (experience mediated through preconception).
The artist offers a personal meditation on how the world works. The exhibition encourage the audience to investigate the gap between knowing and believing, and to develop a different way of experiencing reality that can lead to a new kind of belief. The works on display can be seen as an exercise in seeing and knowing that aims to stimulate our capacity to create our reality and share our experiences with others.
Dellerba will share ideas, pictures, gestures, signs, materials, and memories, inviting the audience into her personal reality, and encouraging them to engage with the show as active participants in the creation of alternative ways of seeing and knowing.
The drawing exercises are comprised of minimal signs and gesture that playfully explore the more complex nature of components that make up a “picture”. Like memories, the artist believes that a drawing is made up of visual fragments and signposts mapped out by the body. This installation will feature an intuitive use of medium and colour.
