LOVE AND INSIGHT IN TRENDY PLACES
27 October – 20 December 2012
“‘Antisade’ is the mirror picture of everyday progressive art. It doesn’t occur in the art world, but it can under extreme circumstances be created. Art and antisade work supplementary. If they come in contact with each other, the reality concept changes and they can destroy each other. […]”
‘Antisade’ deals with the ugly, the perverse, the wrong, the satanic, the frightening. 200 years ago Baudelaire opened the gate for what art still deals with today. Enlightment, modernism and abstraction lead to a common western hysteria that found its climax in the explosion of the first atom bomb. Since then history runs on two parallel tracks.
