Baik Art LA is pleased to present No Permanence is Ours: Jane Brucker & Park Chel-Ho.
Buddhist philosophy teaches us that impermanence is key to existence. All phenomena, without exception, are subject to change, coming and going in never-ending cycles of birth, death, and rebirth. Intimately linked to the concept of impermanence in Buddhist thought is the idea that nothing has an enduring essence, that there is no unchanging soul or self, no lasting anything to anchor our human experience. Instead, all physical and mental events are by nature transient, leading to pain and suffering, for we prefer, as the German poet Hermann Hesse so eloquently noted, a life that is fixed in place. Understanding and accepting impermanence is an important step on the Buddhist’s path to spiritual enlightenment, the profound realization that everything arises, changes, and fades away.
