ORIGINS & BECOMING

At The Plantation

To be able to face this pandemic as a resilient global society, there is a need to deeply understand our system, redefine new sets of values and adapt to situations. In our decadent world lead by money, power, greed, and consumption, we should shift toward an empathetic civilization aware of systemic crisis. 

Aware, ethical, and responsible citizens are keys to our problem.  Only a clear-minded citizen can truly have an impact on our world in understanding basic questions such as: where we are from? where we are going to? 

Having deterred the changes at the individual level, the shift will become reality when the collective level will form coherent and empathic bound societies. 

 

ORIGINS & BECOMING is composed of 4 artworks exploring different themes such as Parenthood; Femininity & Masculinity; Honesty & Vulnerability and Empathy & Compassion. 

 

Adana selected specific themes inviting viewers to introspect our own self as well as personal life. This psychanalytic prospective interrogates on “origin and becoming” of each of us at individual and collective strata. 

 

This difficult exercise to confront oneself starts with honesty in our vulnerability. Strength will then replace weakness. 

At the same time, aware of our human polarity (feminine and masculine facets of man vs woman) will enlighten us on “the complementary” (man and woman). 

 

Finally, developing a sense of empathy and compassion in a critical world is one of the solutions.
