Mobius Gallery: Out of the Blue group show
Immerse yourself in a blue state of existence, an experience of the absence of time allowing full awareness of the space where all meanings collide, change or quietly fade into nothingness.
Inside Mobius Gallery in Bucharest, a fountain floods the whiteness of the walls with its blinding artificial light. The remembrance of nature once wild and alive, archaeological findings of a future that still holds traces of past cultures, stories and symbols, temptation and inhibited desires, totems of primary pleasures, love as ancestral bond and suffocating solitude – each image questions, arrests, provokes the viewer.
The exhibition Out of the Blue, on view through April 30th, comprises works which assign under various forms, from painting to sculpture, substance and power to the chameleonic color, while guiding through the dynamic and continuous process of creating and replacing meaning.
Out of the Blue at Mobius Gallery | Highlights
Rules, games, sounds, colors, shapes, light, darkness, feelings, similarities, everything is different, everything is the same, everything is beautiful, absurd and grotesque, everything is fair, everything is a f**k-up. We got it all. We name each element. We make up instructions. We follow and then create new sets of instructions.
We play the game.
We strive for meaning. Whatever falls outside the meaning drives us crazy, leaves us puzzled, without direction, scared to death. There is no meaning? F**k, we create the meaning! We never give up. It’s got to be something there. It’s about faith. It’s about money. It’s about love, hate, and everything in between. It’s about power. It’s about resilience. It’s about values.
—What is valuable?
—Money, houses, knowledge, gold, tulip bulbs, coffee, pepper, oil, shiny cars, plastic youth, immortality, a toilet when you’re stuck in the subway and you really have to go, respect, words, family, future, history, the soft touch of a hand on a shoulder.
Failure in gripping the essence. Do it again. Next generation. Error. Reboot and reload.
…and we continue to be. Out of the blue.
