1 Tether is a collection of new ways to explore the transient, but close conjunction between our virtual and our actual lives.
Through toying with memory, alchemy, and identity, the exhibition asks, ‘what is it to be tethered?’ —at a time when we are
both hyper-connected and spiritually alienated. In this exhibition tether becomes the gaps, absences, inaccessibilities and
invisibilities that exists between objects and bodies. Going beyond mere sensory input, the participating artists are occupied
with exposing concealed knowledge. Probing the underlying layers of our social, cultural, and political reality to find new
ways to re-evaluate our existence in a hyper-mediated world.

All Welcome.
