Chance Encounters

Presented by Salamanca Arts Centre
and part of the Ten Days on the Island Festival 2009

Curated by Mary Knights and Maria Kunda

Salamanca Arts Centre’s
Major Curated Exhibition for 2009

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.
