Curatorial Statement

The definition of art in the 20th century has changed the whole concept of art. It is the perspective of the artist and the art viewer which determines how we can call an object a work of art. How do we look at the Body of the Object as/in Art? The number of ways to achieve the mode of perfection in making art is “at least” equal to the imagination of each artist and “most probably” much more than the number of artists in the world.

In other words, we can think of at least two ways of looking at the body and materiality of objects in art: Body of the Object as Art and in Art. Sometimes a very normal object in everyday use is installed in a special position and it makes an art work. And some times that object is used alongside other materials to make a piece of art. For instance, consider a normal chest of drawers. By itself, a chest of drawers is not an art object but if you place it sideways down, the idea of misplacement is conveyed to the viewer and an art object is created. Now if you add some torn books inside it with some broken dolls you have an installation with different meanings. The way an object is defamiliarized makes it closer to being an art object. The poeticness of the position and situation is what differentiates art from non-art.

There is literally no limitation in using objects as/in art. Each object including the basic materials, the canvas, the frame, the colors, the metals in sculpture, the camera and printing mode, film installations, etc. has its own influence in the construction of art. Art, then, turns to be a mode of action in objectifying materials, objects and their properties.

This exhibition will display the wide range of materials and techniques used by different artists from China and Europe with different backgrounds in different disciplines.

Creativity knows no limitations and borders.
