The concept of "wrong" emerged around 1300 as the antithesis of "right," broadening over time to encompass deviations from correctness. Its usage has surged, fostering polarization and the emergence of advice-shaming. "Wrong" stands out as an abstract term in English, defining not reality but an abstract consensus of rules. This show delves into the realm of the wrong, a counter to the structured world. Going against the grain signifies courage, defying societal norms, and the pressure to conform. The exhibited objects reject obedience, crafted from discarded materials like broken chairs and energy drink cans. This trash-mache practice harks back to the 1930s and the pandemic era, born from a desire to combat anxiety and societal pressures. Creating in the "Wrong Way" challenges perfectionism and societal expectations, offering a space for rebellion and authenticity amidst conformity. Curated by Amelie Laurice.
