The Latin phrase tabula rasa, translates to English as “blank slate.” It refers to the idea that we are born without preconceived notions or innate traits, that our ideas and ways of being are “written” by our experiences. “Tabula Rasa,” a solo exhibition of the work of Ben Quesnel, inspires viewers to quite literally play with the mechanisms by which meaning, categorization and identity (in short, reality) are constructed and disseminated.
In this exhibition, Quesnel invites us to occupy the beginner’s mind. What is our world? How did we create it? What is possible once we realize we are responsible for what we have collectively made? These questions take on practical meaning in 2020, a year that has demanded that we radically change our relationship to physical presence and social behaviors while questioning the foundations and promises of our institutions, including American democracy itself. Ben Quesnel’s “Tabula Rasa” addresses these questions at their roots and invites us to play and assemble in a new realm of possibility.
