A Matter of Life and Death
November 02, 2010 to January 19, 2011
In these present works, Suciu, as an incessant investigator, deliberately contemplates and insists upon certain aspects of the human condition; human existence is unfolding under the sign of an inescapable finitude which becomes a source of despair and part of life’s absurdity. Existential questions pertinent to angst, alienation, despair, absurdity, flow together and generate images meant to draw the attention inwards as well as to bring the esthetic to a pre determined poetic stage.
September 16, 2010 to November 01, 2010
With this new body of work, Dumitru Gorzo continues to delve into the angst of human condition through the painterly examination of the fellow-creature. Life size human bodies captured in the act of carrying something or somebody as sole resonating constant of the human existence, are inviting the viewer in the creation of the individual narrative. In fact, Gorzo’s reveries are full of these bodies, and through their making, he plays his part in the abysmal search for the sense of life.

Out of Line
May 26, 2010 to June 26, 2010
The conventional concept of line in visual art is bound to drawing on paper. In this exhibition, however, line is a presence, visible in movement and space, paint and electricity, language and metaphor. OUT OF LINE is a fresh look at a variety of line forms: fresh, meaning vigorous and immediate, but also meaning bold and cheeky. OUT OF LINE takes a risk and speaks its own mind.
Today Could be a Day of Historical Importance
April 29, 2010 to May 19, 2010
For Today Could Be a Day of Historical Importance, launched eight years ago, Özkaya collaborated with newspapers across the globe to hand-draw the text and images of pages of their papers after they were laid out by the newspaper’s editors. The drawings were printed in place of the typeset pages, resulting in accessible, affordable, and unexpected works of art that were distributed to millions of people.

Post-Gogol: The Silent Absence of the Body
February 18, 2010 to March 16, 2010
‘Gogol, not Google’… and we laughed. This exhibition appropriates the name of the great Russian/Ukrainian writer to speak about the haunting appearance of physical objects and images in the present world, in which laughter (sometimes through tears) continues to serve as a potent agent of timeless sublime. Laughter keeps disarming the body and makes it invisible.
