“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell, 1984
“You may fetter my leg, but Zeus himself cannot get the better of my free will.”
Control is deceptive and it is fleeting. Our own control of ourselves and the world is never complete nor permanent. This exhibit brings together 4 artists whose artwork discusses concepts of control’s illusory nature in several aspects. Nova Jiang, Nancy Baker Cahill, Cein Watson, and Flora Kao all make work with the central thesis of the fleeting nature of control.
