Chance Encounters


The curatorial premise and the exhibition title are derived from André Breton phrase: ‘the chance encounter between a sewing machine and an umbrella on a dissecting table’ written in response to the nineteenth-century Symbolist poem cycle Les Chants de Maldoror by Comte de Lautréamont. The phrase alludes to the unpredictable ruptures in the everyday which surprise, shock, upturn order and disrupt normality.

Curators: Mary Knights and Maria Kunda.

Artists: Aliksandra Mir, Anne Mestitz, Bianca Barling, Barbara Campbell, Elizabeth Woods, Jim Everett, Louise Haselton, Nicholas Folland and Tracey Allen.
