In The Originals S1 E1 we want to bring together people using contemporary communication in their artistic language. A main focus in the exhibition is originality/authorship.

About

How does one create an authentic piece by using references to more classical art, to T.V., advertising and so on. By choosing rather young artists who grew up with the internet and social media we want to give the viewer an insight in the emotionally driven society where politics are theater and tears are the highest form of art. Brands are used to create our image and context and meaning are stolen from the masters who already put it down in words so true and comforting. The medium is the message.

Yet, we feel hopeful, not disillusioned. We still find the time to paint flowers and unicorns. We want to believe in mastering a m├ętier, in making real connections, with real people, in real life. Selfies become paintings and promotion can be the artwork itself.

Iconology is back and the beauty of art comes from the beauty of info.
