Close / Open
24 March – 9 April 2015

“Concrete, glass and stainless steel are the materials witch still inspires me, without ever I used them in my works. I find in them this confrontation and conflict in the world which I do not seek, and I’m just addicted to. Almost three years after my first solo exhibition in the gallery Rakursi, my personal perspective again facing the people, circumstances and “beautiful” prisons in which we live.

The words ‘close’/’open’, ‘win’/’lose’, ‘entrance’/’exit’, ‘office’/’home’ are those contrasts that already have the same values. Circle that constantly changed direction and meaning and fashion does not even exist.

Light is gloomy, peace is tense, pressure is authority. Searching in what’s been found, cravings in the rejections. The abandoned are happy. Which of these you prefer!”

The exhibition “Close / Open” has a dual nature and is physically divided into two series – “Happy abandoned places” and “Close / Open”.
