Master the Matter - a title that encourages, challenges, and perhaps ironizes if one thinks that it is about humankind’s exaggerated belief in her own ability, that everything can be bent with power and strength.
If one thinks of arts and crafts, the title can be understood as skill in hand and thought, to master one’s subject. To understand with intellect and body how a material can be handled and shaped to create sense and signification.
On the other hand - “the matter”; is perhaps a question, a wonder? Asking a question requires curiosity, a desire to understand and broaden one’s experience. Wondering is not an easy task, the answer requires follow-up and leads to new questions.
Nothing is isolated from the other and in some way everything is connected - so even in this cavalcade of different perspectives on the contemporary that the three exhibitions offer.
