Growth

2016

A semi-secret society of researchers called Growth are fooling about.
  We stumble over ideas and shared inspiration using facebook as a medium.
Anyone can become a member.
This research is both complex and ambiguous.

Driven by multiple random research topics which we would like to open up :
    - What symbolic value does a tree hold ?
    - Why is the Cadeceus a symbol of our contemporary health system ?
    - How is the health system a  fundamental concept of our progress-orientated society and its aspirations ?
    - How is the individual and the collective constructed on facebook ?
    - How a socially closed studio practice can be linked to a socially open space such as a facebook group ?
    - How do we read, construct, employ and archive images on the internet ?
    - How are paintings viewed in the virtual ?
    - What is painting in its current multi-plural state ?
    - How is painting anchored within a Euro-centric art history, thus a collective consciousness and can we change this ?

In a circle, in a conversation in real time some of the members come together to talk.
Talking can be hard when you spend your time with images.
This conversation circle aims to coax the members into a fluid debate.
