Abstract (English)

"Borrowing its title from Roman philosopher Lucretius in his epic poem dedicated to Epicurean philosophy, this exhibition catalogue assumes a multi-linear and non-directional curatorial approach to several individual artistic practices. While the artists surveyed share an interest in strikingly Modernist forms and structures, they employ surrealist wit to repurpose clichéd forms from our everyday urban environment and popular culture into extra-ordinary aesthetic tropes that challenge a stable understanding of both art and our modernity" -- Publisher's web site.
