Trans-/trans, trɑːns, tranz, trɑːnz:/: across, beyond, transcending, through, surpassing; a prefix denoting something farther from the sun.
Blau//blaú/, blue//bluː/: of a color intermediate between green and violet, as of the sky or sea on a sunny day; profane, indecent; melancholy, sad, or depressed.
Using the prefix Trans- as the mode of transportation and Blau as the conceptual meeting point, the participating artists were asked to interrogate the various signs, symbols, sounds, hues, moods, politics, and histories that have aided in the construction of Blau, and to dream of what may lay beyond this ever-evolving constellation. The exhibition, which includes paintings, light installations, sculptures, secret spaces, and performances, reveals the infinite possibilities of such a prismatic idea, which, with the added interference of individual subjectivity and perception, is further fractured.
