Avoidance works best in a state of unawareness. Avoidance is observed in persistent gestures, behaviours and thoughts that mark out a space not admitted to explicit knowledge, but undeniably obliquely present. Avoidance comes to stand for the parts of collective and personal experience not readily accessible to the self, but which partly govern reality.
 
 
The exhibition Avoidance and the works within it propose an encounter with the ways in which the implicit exists on the surface of the visible, repeats itself and ripples through the present, retaining its potency of irresolution. The exhibition proposes the procedure of avoidance as a generative model for thinking against the logic and politics of transparent identity.
