For quite a while now, the poet Charles has been living alone in a tiny apartment downtown. He barely receives guests at home, and goes out only on rare occasions, mostly to meet the casual partners of his debauchery. Socialization does not frighten him, it’s just not of interest to him. Between a savage and autistic human-being, Charles is not the kind of person you can easily put into categories. He follows his instincts and is mostly interested in fulfilling his own needs, which can be reduced to basic necessities. But solitude has led him to a kind of decadence, in which sexual acts and drunkenness have become part of a daily routine.
The exhibition “Charles” aims to bring the visitors into a dark soul, the very inside of a personality which is disconnected from social realities. “Charles” will gather artworks that reflect on the feeling of belonging to an artist’s inner consciousness, almost unadapted for the outside world.
