About

SomoS is glad to present a solo exhibition by current Artist-in-Residence Syed Shoaib Mahmood.

A bold consideration of the modern sublime, exploring the art of surface, materiality and reflection, Syed Shaoib Mahmood ’s exhibition is a poetic and philosophical examination of temporality and immediacy through sculptural works. 

Tracing a shift in Mahmood’s work from the descriptive to the ungraspable, the artist’s preoccupation with surface, reflectivity, illusion and notions of transcendence and the sublime are documented. Delineating from previous techniques relying heavily on text and written word, Mahmood’s latest works incorporate materials such as wood, stainless steel and plexiglass. His sculptures are in a constant state of flux, between illusionary space, physical allure and mystical and metaphysical reference, on a razor’s edge “between Disneyland and the Sublime.” 

About the artist:
Syed Shoaib Mahmood (India) is a mixed-media artist currently based in Berlin. Having previously exhibited as a solo artist at The Kings & Queens Gallery, Mumbai, Mahmood’s dynamic practice builds on his experience as a student of sculpture at J.J School of Arts, Mumbai. Working primarily with sculpture and text, Mahmood’s works explore language, beauty, perception, and the spatial relationships of people and objects. Mixed-media and installation techniques employ reflection, metaphor, and relational distance to position the viewer, asking them to see and accept the temporality of moments. 

Opening event on Tuesday 12 February 2019, 6pm - 9pm 
At SomoS Art House, Kottbusser Damm 95, 1.OG, 10967 Berlin.
