Août Gallery is delighted to present its second group show: “Between Visions”. The exhibit, debuting on the 22nd of October, will display the works of five emerging artists: Arjen, Afa Annfa, Einar Lúðvík Ólafsson, Marius Seidlitz and Qin Tan.
The featured works offer a thematic, stylistic and iconographic array, yet they are mutually centered on an inquisitive requestioning of the human condition. The artists set sail on their personal anthropological mission, wandering between the realms of the physical and the psycho-social human body.
Through their oeuvres, they get to delve into their deepest selves and exteriorize their visceral [visions] in the form of fantasy. The results collectively pertain to the abstraction of the human form, a deliberate and evocative feature. Rooted in the artists’ contemplative processes, the aim of this mode of representation is to induce shifts in the mind of the observer.
The group exhibition follows Août’s purpose of featuring international contemporary artists in the heart of Gemmayzeh, and aims to offer viewers a gentle distraction and a soft pause from the harsh reality.
