Michel de Certeau notes that modern individuals “make innumerable and infinitesimal transformations of and within the dominant cultural economy in order to adapt it to their own interests and their own rules”.  It is with these invented and ordered tactics of altering situations and spaces—poaching, remixing, and producing alternatives to the scriptedness of art nowadays—that we are aiming to collaborate, re-create, re-adapt and fill the space. They demonstrate that the potentiality for new ways of being and experiencing already exist before us in the tools we have at hand. What results is an aesthetic that advocates radical inventiveness, rather than a blind call for an already invented and flat revolution.

Curated by Ombretta Agro’ Andruff, Unpredictable Patterns of Behavior presents 12 artists, architects and composers that relate to patterns in very unique and distinctive ways. Whether they extrapolate natural patterns and integrate them in their art-making processes, or play with geometrical patterns, or yet create their own patterns inspired by existing man-made landscapes or by invented systems, they all offer us the opportunity to go beyond the pure aesthetic enjoyment of the artworks featured in the galleries, and reflect upon the patterns that served as their inspirations. This exhibition is a sequel to Agro’ Andruff’s 2012 New York exhibition, “(Un) Folding Patterns.”  The New York show focused on the relationship between mathematics and the visual arts. This sequel explores how creative minds interpret patterns across the artistic disciplines.

Multiplicity is defined as the quality or state of being multiple or various. The artists in this exhibition do not work with the quantitative notion of the word but rather examine the multiple uses of materials and their transformative quality to take on a range of meanings and functions. Whether they are found objects, recycled trash or simple materials utilized in daily life, the artists challenge, re-use and re-invent them in the creation of sculptural pieces, paintings, installations and photographs that reveal their aesthetic qualities and reference the personal context in which they were made.
