Conceived in dialogue with Societe’s previous exhibition 'Calculated Chance’, the exhibition ‘Encountered Error’ continues to highlight artistic approaches based on the interplay between control and accident. 


Principles and processes of destruction, accident, failure, feedback, error all play an important role in the conception and creation of art. The exhibition tries to place these ‘negative notions’ in a ‘positive perspective’ and attributes to 'error' its true merit as an essential element in the meaning of art. It questions the medium and its limitations such as the conventions of language, its understanding, as well as the materials and techniques used in the process of art making.
