The Usefulness of Uselessness the second solo exhibition of abstract artist Joanne Chan The show features her abstract paintings, ceramics and mixed media installation from 2015 to 2020, which will guide you towards an inward journey of reflection.

Joanne states that “We only see what we want to see, it is a blindspot for everyone, in the pursuit of truth, we must learn to admit and let go. It is hard sometimes to face our emotions honestly, but acknowledging our true feelings is the very first step to understanding ourselves, thus we can unlearn and undefine. A new beginning is ahead of us every second.”

Alternating between useful and useless, The Usefulness of Uselessness records the daily discoveries on the path of spiritual practice. As our definition fickles, our perception of the world is changed. The pursuit of truth, connected through the awareness of breathing, is the path we long for and pursue deep in our hearts. In Joanne’s path, she realised and accepted the fact that “change” will always remain perpetual, “change” is not terrifying, and what terrifies is the ego that rejects to accept “change”. She hopes the audience could find a place for stillness from a turbulent of emotions through different means.
