The Labyrinthine Effect

23 May–20 Jul 2003

ACCA Main Exhibition Gallery

The Labyrinthine Effect combined works by international and local artists through various projects, which included built environments, storybooks, videos, films, a roving encyclopaedia and works on paper, as well as on the World Wide Web. The exhibition explored this most important physical and philosophical shape in culture: a form that has been reshaped by philosophy to operate as a metaphor for the growing complexity of humanity’s progressive drama.

Exhibiting Artists: Francis Alys, Colin Duncan, Rodney Graham, Marie-Ange Guilleminot, Ilia and Emilia Kabakov, Jutempus Nomades, Bruce Nauman, Anne Ooms, Joao Penalva, John Pym, Danielle van Zuillan

Curator: Juliana Engberg
Project Manager: Rebecca Coates
