Using smart pigments and materials, Realm of Hungry Ghosts addresses impermanence, the Buddhist notion of existence in our contemporary lives, through the narrative realms of Samsara; Life, Death and Rebirth.
“Things and experiences are in constant flux, and there is no inherent or fixed nature to any object or experience. Things are constantly coming into being and ceasing to be. Everything we can experience through our senses is made up of parts, its existence is dependent on external conditions.”
IWCT is an experiential illustration event that will be on public display at the Gladstone Hotel from March 6–30, 2014.
Curated by Leila Courey, IWCT is a juried exhibition of experiential illustration that features work by emerging and established artists. Selected projects use illustration—or other art forms related to it—to occupy or alter the hotel’s 2nd floor gallery and public spaces, in dramatic, conceptual, and experimental ways.
