"AN ANTIDOTE TO STIFF EDGES" ~ smoothing (lines into circles) is an exhibition that seeks to grind down stark corners, flat bluntness, vertical systems, and short-cut assumptions through gestural explorations. Curling around textual and corporeal abstractions, and meandering along poetic and geometric condensations, the exhibition follows the journey of straight lines as they transform into poetic ones. The artworks are looking after the materialities of the language, of the body, and of the form simultaneously to create new languages to view, new bodies to read, and new forms of being together. Embodying new, existing, or re-visited drawings, installations, and sculptures by Maria Barnas, Sepideh Behrouzian (DAI, 2020), Annabelle Binnerts, Sabrina Chou, Maike Hemmers (DAI, 2017), José Quintanar, Merey Şenocak, and Baha Görkem Yalım (DAI, 2018), smoothing (lines into circles), proposes a circle as an unbreakable line of elasticity, an antidote to stiff edges. Where: A Tale of A Tub. Till: August 28, 2022.
