Building from Shimmer’s first program of fading exhibitions in, through, and out of each other, we now shift rhythms by curating singular artworks over stretches of time. Higher! Higher! Lower, Lower. Louder! Louder! Softer, Softer embodies slow deliberate processes with a changing register. By doing so the exhibition moves like water, unfixed, in motion. We understand the exhibition as a choreographic score where through shifting rhythms, registers, and movements artworks overlap, where ideas and generations cross-over. The format of our exhibition unfolds over time, opening up and crossing conceptual, spatial, and temporal borders.
