Outline

Today, “making” is receiving a great deal of interest.
According to the anthropologist Tim Ingold, making is not merely an act of creating something based on a previously imagined form, it is also an act in which people use their hands to engage in a dialogue with the material and try to cultivate something. In this exhibition, which sets out to reexamine the essence of making as an important human gift, we present works by people in the act of creating is integrated with the act of living.

The majority of the artists in the exhibition are not so-called “professional” artists. Lacking any desire for recognition, they have developed their own unique methodologies in the course of everyday life. Thus, the significance the works lies in the fact that they form a connection between creating and living.
