"Mixed Reality" Show with FinDAC, SKIO & Vermibus, by Pretty Portal on Mar 31, 2022 13:42:53 GMT 1,
Dear board members,
From April 8th we will show “Mixed Reality” with works by FinDAC, SKIO and Vermibus. We are very happy to have new works by FinDAC on display, and also to present with SKIO and Vermibus two new, very exciting artists. In their artworks all artists deal with beauty, aesthetics and their perception in our society.
Mixed reality encompasses environments or systems that mix the natural perception of a user with an artificial perception. This sounds a bit like science fiction. But if you look at the term in a less technical way, you quickly realize how intensively we are already confronted with mixed realities. Media, the tremendous flood of information made available to us by the Internet and of course social media put to the notion of what really is to test almost daily.
Send me PM with your mail address to receive the collectors preview (pdf) of the show.
Nothing is as it seems
The three artists in the show “Mixed Reality” deal with these mixed realities. In his collages, FinDAC indeed shows “torn” protagonists, while combining different versions of the same thing. In doing so, he questions sexual stereotypes and colonial perceptions. SKIO observes everyday life becoming increasingly virtual due to the growing dominance of social media. In his paintings, he examines the uniformity that our society imposes on people and the demand for beauty that is imposed on women in particular. Vermibus also deals with ideals of beauty shaped by society and the media. He humanizes his previously de-personalized models by literally dissolving them and thus offers a sharp social criticism of the advertising and fashion industry.
On display are collages, paintings and analog manipulated photographies.
