“Words and images are correlates that eternally search for one another”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The theme of our upcoming exhibition is the motif that constantly revolves and rejuvenates in the arts, that is, the flower. The greatness of this classical subject is its simplicity. The title of the exhibition was inspired by a poem entitled Date by A.K. Blakemore published in Dazed and Confused Magazin in 2018.
Throught this exhibition we aim to keep alive this eternal theme and intend to present a variety of its representation in different media. We also plan to re-think the relationship between fine arts and literature, - it is certainly not unconventional but rarely happens is a gallery setting - we will exhibit sevelal poems along the artworks.
The poems will be exhibited as single artworks, placed on the walls, along with the paintings, drawings, photos and objects. The selection is not aiming to continue the long discourse of esthetic polemia, but intends to present these sistermuses parallel to each other. We do not want to make „poetry to a speaking picture, painting to a silent poetry” (Lessing) We believe that poetry has a place in an exhibition situation, where literary and visual arts affect one another and as well reveal new readings and perceptions.
