Curatorial Art Practice in Ramsgate and beyond
Gaia Theory (Lovelock) maintains that Mother Earth is a self-regulating system, an organism on a massive scale within which microorganisms interact to help generate the optimum conditions for their own survival. The world evolved the way it did in tandem with its inhabitants on a bio-geo-socio-political level to hold steady the idyllic conditions for the continued success of all concerned, the common good; the more contributors the steadier the controls.
Luscious Liquid Of Equilibrium seeks to explore this feedback loop on a literal level, applying it to the proliferation of artistic production under the conditions of ‘the exhibition’. Utilising Gaia as a kind of curatorial template, each artist deals with the complexities of excess input on their own terms, whilst the exhibition (in turn dealing with the proliferation of artists) fuses them together in a self-regulating system of its own. The show, therefore, relies on the diversity of it’s content to ensure the continued stability of its context.
