The group show “module V- Part B, ‘Quieter than Silence’” is part of the Venetia Initiative Projects (Modules) of Venetia Initiatives, New York. Throughout the different modules, Venetia Initiatives oversees and works in production and collaboration with dedicated artists and designers in a collaborative effort. The focus of the ‘Modules’ is to accentuate artistic expression and production of individual pieces, including the development of a prototyping for collectibles and industry: “We are learning through complexity and simplicity.”
Part B/Module V takes a deeper ‘dive’ with Albert Camus (1913-1960)( french philosopher, author, journalist) for the human existence and absurdity.
Albert Camus thought that life had no meaning, that nothing exists that could ever be a source of meaning, and hence there is something deeply absurd about the human quest to find meaning. Appropriately, then, his philosophical view was called (existentialist) absurdism.
Camus focused most of his philosophy around existential questions. The absurdity of life, the inevitable ending (death) is highlighted in his acts. His belief was that the absurd—life being void of meaning, or man’s inability to know that meaning if it were to exist—was something that man should embrace.
“module V- Part B, ‘Quieter than Silence’” takes place from March 3 – April 16, 2022 at 481 GREENWICH ST, NEW YORK, NY 10013.
