Lado Darakhvelidze (DAI, 2010) is one of the participants in a group show curated by Youri Appelo for Garage Rotterdam. A SLIPPERY SLOPE presents artworks which, within their own context, have a place in the current whirlwind of complexity; a place between nonlinearity, pluriformity and as a response to the power structures that are hidden behind a mask of simplification.
A Slippery Slope
November 19, 2021 - January 23, 2022
Is it possible to keep a grip on a world in which the boundaries between past and future, truth and untruth, and the real and unreal are becoming increasingly blurred? In our polarised and hyper-capitalist society, it appears that behind everything a hidden agenda is at play. Ingrained ideas, however, are now on ‘a slippery slope’, on which the descent into a sea of complexity seems inevitable.
The group exhibition A Slippery Slope focuses on the question of how we can learn to deal with this complexity without losing our minds. The exhibition offers perspectives in which generalised and simplified ways of thinking make way for more complex ones. This transition is portrayed through concepts such as new approaches to time, authenticity and knowledge.
A Slippery Slope presents artworks which, within their own context, have a place in this whirlwind of complexity; a place between nonlinearity, pluriformity and as a response to the power structures that are hidden behind a mask of simplification. The exhibition aims to act as a plea for letting go of our ingrained ways of thinking.
