To defamiliarize in art is to distance position from the familiar to the unknown in a transformative process.Both as a method and as a topic it is a depiction or installation of the unexpected which is focused on in the process. The aim is to create new connections, to highlight elements in a new light, literally defamiliarize the familiar. Often form and shapes of a familiar context gain a new life of their own on a new level of perception and/or association. Even elements of surprise can be evoked, pointing to unexpected conditions or opinion.Historically the Dadaist and Surrealists made their mark on this art form. The Fluxus Movement of the 1960s, too, saw the art form rise to perfection.This exhibition seeks to re-connect with this tradition in dreams, nightmares and societal visions, aiming to evoke an element of transformation.
