Ivan Simeon "NO TITLE / SUB-TITLE: PORTRAIT"
Opening Thursday February 16th in the presence of the artist
The gallery Dubner Moderne is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Ivan Simeon “NO TITLE / SUB-TITLE: PORTRAIT” from February 16th until March 1st 2012. The Vernissage will be on Thursday, February 16th in the presence of the artist from 18h. A meet the artist event has also been organized for Saturday, February 25th.
Whilst interviewing people for his contemporary art project “ Love – Does Love really exist or is it a chimera of our modern society” the artist was captivated by a group of people on the fringes of society who appear perfectly integrated, but who, in reality have failed due to the rules of society. They are prisoners of a past reality and whilst they bear the distinct signs of success they nevertheless have an existential dilemma. How to build their lives in the complexity of our society?
“Is destructiveness not but a anarchistic way to build?”
In a second exhibition room a selection of pieces from Ivan Simeon’s series “Célébrités: Mythe et Réalités” will also be on exhibition.
