Slicing Burning Boiling is an experimental response to the often exclusive and discriminatory nature of the contemporary art market. Featuring young artists who critically interface with capitalist, Euro-centric education systems, the exhibition disrupts the impulse to create commercialized art by exhibiting highly personal, intimate work. Further, it disputes the abusive correlation between value and labor in art-making. In doing so, it renegotiates the “process” of becoming a successful “artist” and questions the authority of those who have established such boundaries for decades.
Slicing Burning Boiling analyzes the difficult process of identity-making in a commodified art world, and finding solace in what makes us vulnerable and unique. It is an amalgam of undisclosed thoughts, abused emotions and lessened ambitions.
