To re-enchant matter is to enact a metamorphic transformation. In the artist’s studio or, in light of recent events, possibly in a living room, artists are constantly navigating the matter of their practice. Ideas and material are transformed from one state into another as they are dismantled, dissected, doubled, only to be re-configured as the maker’s own. Once the process is complete, something new has hatched.

The topic of metamorphosis is by its very definition always changing and vastly expansive. The publication demonstrates the constantly shifting nature of things and the transformative process inherent in art-making, while considering the constant mutations occurring in the societies and cultures around us.

To re-enchant matter is to re-mystify, re-imagine, re-order, re-build.
