Come As You Go is an exhibition about the use of space and materials inspired by geographical and temporal displacement. It is an open dialogue between the curator, artists and most importantly the audience. The title is recognition of how changes can take place, subtly overlapping and blending in with each other. It is about knowing and being able to recognize the many developments that circulate in daily life. At the center of each of these works is a sense of awareness of environment seen through materials and installation. Crate acts as a host site for these works that are comfortably unhinged. Come As You Go is about ideas, spaces and people in flux.
