About the Art:
In today’s age, answers to every question seem available at our fingertips. The latest developments in the field of artificial intelligence continue to make information more accessible than ever before, providing answers to all those who seek it. And yet, this vast amount of information and knowledge often proves insufficient when we experience life’s hardship.
The book of Job tells the story of a man who experiences intense suffering: the loss of his family, career, and afflicted with disease. Throughout 42 long chapters, Job questions, cries, prays, faces the unknown darkness, and meets with the divine power at the climax. As he reflects on these tragedies and his life, he wrestles with the fascinating question of wisdom: do man’s good deeds affect God in any way? Or as Tolstoy once said, “Is there anything from this life that death will not take?”
Through this exhibition, these artists invite us to walk through Job’s journey by confronting the most difficult life questions, not necessarily as an endless search for words that will quiet the heart, but through works of art that express a cry, a prayer, or an invitation to encounter the divine.
