But what is decadence? For the purposes of this show we will call decadent that which acts in accord with an original proposition but has since lost its purpose. A wedding cake that is all cream and no cake. But also, an excess where the original intent is pushed so far that it is no longer rationale or goes so far as to undo the meaning of that first intention. Once this stage has been reached the morning after holds the promise of the unknown.
“We are living after the deluge, after life, after the modern…a state of things which is unnatural, post-natural, post human and inhuman.” –Antonio Negri
