A facade means the face or the front of something. Just like the face of humankind, the
physical and the non physical facades we all carry all along our lives.
For some, their facades are for expression and for some it’s for protection.
Some wear them like another skin. And, some carry it with the weight of their being.
But, In-between everything their is this continuous attempt of creating something.
A surface. A story.
An experience. An experiment.
With this call for art, We are looking to take a peek into these physical & non physical
facades of your being via art, aesthetics’s and storytelling.
