 - Uncombed, Unforeseen, Unconstrained
Published in conjunction with the exhibition Uncombed, Unforeseen, Unconstrained, a Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition | La Biennale di Venezia, 2022, this book documents the deeply thoughtful responses of eleven international contemporary visual artists to the state of the world in the early twenty-first century.
Aesthetically beguiling and conceptually convincing, their works reflect on some of the alarming aspects of entropy—often interpreted as the degree of disorder within a system—which are increasingly pervading life on planet Earth and even putting it at risk. Complementing the concept and ideas behind the exhibition, this book includes three thought-provoking texts in the form of two essays: "Sensing Time" by the exhibition's curator Ziba Ardalan, and "Entropisms" by artist and writer Julien Bismuth; and an intriguingly relevant story by curator and writer Tom Morton.
