Chaos Born - Creature Creature
(17 - 31 May 2018 at Off the Kerb, front gallery, Melbourne, Australia)
In their creation myth, Yin and Yang were born out of chaos in the centre of the earth. The principles state that one thing cannot exist without its opposite, contrast is needed to create a distinguishable reality, without which we would experience nothingness.
Creature Creature wants to promote collaboration as a philosophy. Their partnership breaks the myth of the lone artist, as collaboration is an instinctive ritual for them in realms of art and life. They share the vision of a collaborative future, a model for society that survives on a community rather than self-interest and ego; a balance of individualism and collectivism. This philosophy is translated with design principles: Balance, harmony, repetition, contrast, proximity, hierarchy, proportion, dynamism and movement. Collaboration is about preserving diversity, creating something complex, layered and fluid. The natural state of working together.
