Liao Dean | Exhibition | Nihilo-Ex-Datum (Prelude)

On June 22nd, Nihilo-Ex-Datum (Prelude) by Liao Dean has filled up our New Studio with a wide range of works produced during his four-week residency at Arts Letters & Numbers. The show employed a combination of created site-specific installations, stop-motion film, sculpture works, and performance to reexamine the relationship between connection and significance, to explore contemporary attitudes regarding data and knowledge. Combining conceptual elements from eastern philosophy, mathematical logic, and post-modern literature with locally sourced materials and refuse, the exhibition guided audience members through a landscape cluttered with pablum and significance in order to encourage reflection on the derivation of meaning through the lens of artistic creation and critical deconstruction.
