In certain sects of Christian theology, the notion of kenosis refers to the renunciation of one's divine nature that is necessary to take on earthly form. It is a concept that has been explored by numerous faiths, both ancient and modern, and resonates with the notion that the early realm is beneath that of the heavenly.
The word kenosis which is Greek, means "emptying out", in creative terms, this show explores the concept of the creative process as a kind of kenotic action, an emptying out of one's emotions and laying bare one's state of mind for a cathartic, communicative purpose. Each artist presents work that deals with this concept in a way unique to their practice.
