Natural Equilibrium - Open Call

Natural Equilibrium

Contemporary transitions of understanding

Natural Equilibrium - Contemporary Transitions of understanding, is an international contemporary art exhibition with a focus on the display artistic reflections on natural order, balance, adaptation, and the cyclic nature of things. An exhibition developed in collaboration with an international group of artists.

How can these natural processes be visualized and explained in contemporary art? An artistic research into reaching equilibrium by responding, adjusting, and adapting to stimulus, actions or interventions is nature’s way of doing things. Nature’s single most characteristic cycle - the birth-growth-decay-death and birth again. In the end, it is all about humans and the responsibilities associated with human actions - either in applying the equilibrium principle to understand nature and harness its resources, or in conserving and sustaining the beauty of natural canvas for the future. Human behavior - actions, reactions, and associated uncertainties - is much more difficult to understand than physics of nature and its uncertainty.

An exhibition concept developed by the Dutch curator and artist Ron Weijers for the artists for artist 10dence platform. The artworks on display are an artistic vision and reflection on the concept of the Natural Equilibrium exhibition in a broader sense. The aim of the exhibition is to promote and stimulate thinking patterns within a rapidly changing world. The artworks naturally provide food for thought from various points of view and the content of the exhibition focuses on stimulating dialogue and discussion among visitors about the theme.

The Natural Equilibrium - Contemporary Transitions of understanding exhibition is programmed to be on display in August/September 2023.
