Captives of Habit
Drawing on the notion of Fluxkits, boxes containing a series of objects, materials and sensorial components that suggest new non-linear narratives, Captives of Habit invites eight artists to create situations that subvert the usual ways of being in the world and offer up alternatives.
Artists will exhibit works that imply new forms of interactivity that respond to, counter or ameliorate the ordinary flow of life and scramble the usual associations of everyday objects and social situations.
These works aim to disrupt formal arrangements that allow for the smooth navigation of social interactions. A new space for imaginary happenings or events will be created where objects are cast into a new light, defamiliarised and made strange, jolting us out of the habits and paradigms within which we find ourselves.
