The title of the exhibition, ‘Clinamen’, is derived from the Epicurean philosophy which guarantees freedom from deterministic form.In his poem ‘De rerum natura’, Tito Lucrezio Caro transposes the principles of Epicureanism. He does so by translating the Latin word ‘clinamen’ to the Greek noun parénklisis, meaning the path of atoms in their fall, in physical, material Epicurean form which enables the possibility of human freedom against determinism.
Internal and external forces interact, fight, align, and brake to give life to infinite variations, to which each one gives his own momentary and fleeting vision, his own moment of freedom.
