In musical composition the words “en. morendo” indicate a piece should be played as if “fading into nothingness,” or, in other words, a sound that slowly dies. In contrast, this term can also be interpreted to mark a sudden change in tempo, and more often one that alters the entire mood of the piece. In this spirit, the works presented in this exhibition evoke decay and deterioration but in ways that focus less on notions of ‘the end’ so much as notions of transference and passing from one form to another.
