“EAT MY HEART” a contemporary art show by Taline Temizian – 5th August to 5th September 2015. Curated by Miguel Mallol, creative consultancy by Sascha Bailey.
Carousel Spaces presents a new exhibition by Taline Temizian. Twenty pieces from 2013 to 2015 that explore the cardiac series. A research into a personal symbol of the artist, that has accompanied her pieces in a research among passions, love and senses in a stirring environment. This exhibition is partly an on-going homage to her late father who was a successful cardiologist, and encouraged her artistic talent since childhood, and partly as her constant search for the lost love or in anticipation for it.
Eat My Heart is an invitation for an exploratory journey into The CARDIAC, everything in life is related to the heart. It invites people to open their eyes and souls and see life from an emotional, philosophical, conceptual, existentialist and sensual perspective.
This continuous journey following love under the shadow of deconstruction has 2 dimensions: physical and emotional.
The heart is the only organ that works relentlessly all through our lives and love is its’ most important Byproduct
‘In my art in general and this show in specific I am celebrating The Cardiac, with an endless representational exercise in my creative and emotional journey that keeps me alive.. The journeys of love and life force we get from the heart that keep all of us alive. Both physically and emotionally…So when we have a Cardiac for dinner then we know that Love is in the air! and when we serve love to someone then we are giving life another chance!’
Notes to Editor
British-American, with Armenian origin, born 1978.
Prefaced by an education in visual communication (London College of Communications), art and design (Central Saint Martins), literature (Aleppo University) and fashion (ESMOD, France), her work often cites themes and characters that seem familiar but whose identities have become blurred, divorced from their original contexts like émigrés in her fictional world. Through extensive research, technical rigour and sustained reflection she has gradually developed a unique visual language, characterised by the frequently recurring symbols and motifs that suffuse her work. Temizian’s abstract figurative painting is highly gestural and yet meticulously planned, merging the factual with the fictional; imposing a subtle geometry and the illusion of order on to a world full of uncertainty. Often featuring a host of inscrutable Kafka-esque characters, Temizian constructs twisted dreamlike landscapes that echo the work of, amongst others, Calvino, Bosch and Picasso. Taline Temizian lives and works in London.
Drawing on their experiences as purveyors of London’s most innovative pop-ups, parties and events, the Templeton cousins (the award-winning team behind Shuttlecock Inc) opened Carousel in August 2014 after identifying a gap in the market for a versatile venue in Central London that can accommodate events of all different kinds - creative or corporate - from art exhibitions and acoustic gigs to brand activations and company away days.
