ATOPIA Art & City In The XXI Century

7 Mar

 

“Nothing of this will inspire pity in twenty-first century men”

 ATOPIA_From 25 February 2010 to 24 May 2010

The exhibition explores a kind of unease—the awkwardness that exists between the city and the individual.

With the modern-day citizen now connected 24/7 and massive exchange of information what happens when you ride the subway and all you hear is quiet. As commuters pop in their headphones, update their Facebook and twitter their every mood the urban jungle has become a vacuum, just the sound of thumbs texting and iPhones being tapped…

_OLEG DOU “Glasses 2” (Moscow  b.1983)

 
Atopia is the feeling of unease experienced by the individual faced with a city that does exist, but which in no case represents the paradise dreamt-of or promised, for the simple reason that the monster that is now the city has taken on a life of its own.

_Erwin Olaf “Grief” (Hilversum b. 1959)
