Drawn from the Heide Museum of Modern Art collection Things that will not sit still explores the shifting nature of perception, art and ideas. The exhibition addresses the way in which the selected artworks attend to, or, suggest movement—forward and back across time—shifts in focus, perceptual dissolution, forms of disruption and agitation. Some works contain, or address, multiple ideas or reference points—constellations of thought that jostle in the mind and fail to come to rest. Things that will not sit still attends to the complex dialogue between art, mind and experience.
