Art, from the times of the cave-men to our day, has helped us understand human relations
through the interpretations and creativity of mankind manifesting himself over primitive
drawings, eventually evolving towards sophisticated art forms, over centuries. Artsy movements,
as a bridge between dream and reality are in fact acts of bonding the rational with irrational
phenomenon, the real and unreal, the images and the actual entities. Shortly, we can say that art
is the adventure of getting to know, transforming and creating oneself. As its consequence we
observe that, one, in his struggle to transcend himself, gets to discover and proves his existence
through others’ medium. Especially, the figures in the art themes form and reveal their
understanding and interpretation from the standpoint of their cultural circle and geographical
origins and implement their ever-changing essence.
From Neolithic times to our day, animal images appear both formally and conceptually as quite
diverse manifestations of the artists’ psyche. Regardless of their initial “three dimensional figures
over two dimensional surface” methods that are followed by the shattering of the traditional art
and their replacement by modernism, they were eventually led to contemporary practices. The
notion of death, even if it maintains its validity in conceptual sense, in relation to the
understanding and acceptance of the aggression within, man’s confrontation with his animalistic
instincts is transformed, in a way, towards more realistic formats of contemporary art language
compared to the traditional.
These nine artists from different background and cultures aim to present to the spectators their
reality and visualizations, using their own plastic language and personal interpretations, the
exposure of “human-animal” and “inhuman animal” context using the symbolic motives of the
“I, in their own Words” exhibition will be at Gallery G-Art from 7 November thru 26 December
Tuesday-Saturday between 11:00-19:00 hrs.
