When asked in an interview about the construction of reality and how to deal with it, philosopher and physician Heinz von Foerster answered: “Where is reality? Can you show it to me?”

real-madeleineInterference is an exhibition of CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with the Petach Tikva Museum of Art in Israel, presenting the artists Vadim Zakharov, Guy Goldstein and Ariel Reichman, curated by Drorit Gur Arie.

Finissage with performance by Chryssa Tsampazi with Clara and Luise Andrees:

In her performance, “I Have Never Been This Honest”, Chryssa Tsampazi will place herself in the position of each individual artist, as well as the viewer’s point of view on the exhibition.

In doing so, she will also refer to the titles of the individual works. The titles do have a special significance within the exhibition, since they have not only made the artists face the challenge of finding a title for an art work that is not yet meant to be one, but also to find a title that refers to the story behind the object and the reason why the work has never been shown.

Never Shown on Purpose | 4.11.16 – 14.1.17

Within the artistic process works emerge that seem not to fit into the cosmos of an artist‘s practice. In the eyes of the maker, they have not yet been defined as an art work, or were determined as a study. In order to take a view behind the curtain, artists have been invited to propose a work they have never shown before for various reasons. Some of the works were never accepted as finished because they failed, looked overdrawn or simply appeared not good enough. Others, however, seemed too personal or intimate to show. What do unaccomplished and withheld works tell about the personality of the artist, the mechanisms of self versus external judgements, and the definition of artworks in general? Continue reading
