The frame
generates aura spectacle fantasy
acts as a gateway for the viewer to peer
into the world of the artist

The frame
encloses art presents art suffocates art
keeps art standing still

to dissimilate the frame is:
to drag art out
to break down tradition into fragments
to decompose historical aesthetics
to create instead an indulgence

a formal dismissal of assembly

Becoming // Unlike is a sensual breakdown of
existing borders between the spectator and the
artwork. Removing the frames reinvents the
gallery into a kaleidoscopic projection of
colour, form, identity, culture and

To become unlike is not to be what once was.
We invite you into a field of spilling images,
unconfined and unframed.
