The State of Not Knowing
The State of Not Knowing is a duo exhibition by Deanna Gisborne and Ernesto Hidalgo, held between October 21-31, 2019 at York University's Special Projects Gallery.
"In our individual practices, though unique to our idiosyncratic perspectives and experiences, there is quite a bit of overlap thematically. Ultimately, a search for our complicated identities is at the heart of our work, whether this is manifested by obscuring the body, multiplying form, collapsing into a writhing vortex or creating dream-like worlds where animals and humans intersect. We try to reconcile contradictions in ourselves, made possible through the unbounded language of art. All of this probing of the self-conscious mind is expressed in bodies, trying from all angles to reach that same conclusion and achieve resolution: Who am I, and how can I grasp this ever-evolving self? This question is, of course, unanswerable, but we continue this cycle indefinitely, because we are human, and we are curious. This show is an introspective confrontation- one which will leave the viewer unsettled, and pulled into our philosophical playground."
