This exhibition is a thought experiment about art created as a means of dealing with the hereafter.

About

Ai Weiwei once declared that all ancient art was created out of a fear of death. Whether he meant that art was a defense against death or a preparation for it, or some other kind of accommodation of the hereafter, it is a broad statement that certainly works as a starting point for exploring DEVOTION at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery. This exhibition is a thought experiment about art created as a means of dealing with the hereafter. What happens after death is still the greatest metaphysical challenge to the human entity, and much art is still being created to deal with that eventuality.
