   Our daily experience is a combination of fast happening events that take us away from observing beyond the general constructs we deal with everyday. These constructs are composed by our physical interactions with the world and numbed our virtual interaction with the media. We find ourselves falling in a continuous timeless contemplation that yields to nothing but more contemplation. But what is there to do than to code the experience of such absurdity?

     Letting it Slip: The Constant Struggle With the Obvious displays a selection of works that seek meaning beyond our everyday stimuli. Whether it is depicting the mundane or abstracting from it, the exhibit aims to turn experience into a code. The code becomes apparent as the subject matters of the artworks generate a situation that turns a familiar subject into a new construct.
