Event Description

The artists in SMOKE AND MIRRORS investigate the nature of reality; how objects, memories, ideas come into being, how they persist and how they cease to exist. The works want to make ghosts appear in the flesh and, at the same time reveal their illusionary nature. These artists are magicians of their trade, oblique translators of both physical and virtual environments, recreating stages and props, histories and identities. By exploring the space between known and unverifiable realities, they shed light on the infinite vagueness of the anthropocentric universe.

The exhibition encompasses video, sculpture, installation and performance and presents artists from Argentina, Finland, France, Italy, Germany and the United States.

Gordon Winiemko, Elizabeth Withstandley, Gioj De Marco, Barry Markowitz, Dorsey Dunn, Thomas Muller, Alejandra Urresti, Josephine Wister Faure, Lewis Colburn, Clifton Childree, Heta Ku
