The exhibition Butterflies count not months but moments, and have enough time brings together artistic perspectives on social and environmental transformation from the young generation of EU and ASEAN artists. The exhibition centres on the idea of nature as a site of environmental and philosophical imagination. It questions the very notion of sustainability in terms of the circular economy and in relation to cultural belonging. Do we identify with our environment? Is the environment simply the place we live in? Or is it also the place we leave behind? Does the term ‘sustainability’ resonate equally in different parts of the world? Or is it tinted by cultural and social beliefs and behaviours?
