5 Artists across 5 mediums each submit 5 works in a 5” by 5” format

Curated by Kristin D'Agostino

28 September – 25 October 2015

Early this year, I curated a show reflecting on the asymmetrical possibilities of the single earring and resulted in a show called “Symmetry is the Work of the Devil”. In conversation with artists, I realised that others have been fascinated by this issue and responded through their practice. So, I am interested in a group project about asymmetry and how different artists approach the topic.



5 artists across 5 mediums contributed one work each week for 5 weeks. Each work measured (or fit into) a 5inch by 5inch square/cube. The process was posted via images to a private blog that the 5 artists were able to access. The resulting work were on display during the Wunderruma satellite event called Wundeweek. Thursday 16th - 20th July, Studio One Toi Tu.
