Diaz Contemporary is pleased to present BLIND WHITE, an exhibition of six national and international artists: Jen Aitken, Abbas Akhavan, Aude Pariset, Nicolas Sassoon, Rachelle Sawatsky and Mark Soo. Invited to respond to the intersection of technology and the phenomenology of light, each selected artist approaches these concerns through differing material practices. Central to the works of each artist selected for the exhibition are the role of technology, science, obsolescence, consumer culture, labour and tracing the void. As an exhibition, BLIND WHITE proposes an oscillation between scientific or technological senses of knowing and philosophical or spiritual senses of understanding, that suggest a rhizomatic form of looking.
