Louise Alexander Gallery | AF PROJECTS

Porto Cervo, Italy 1/6/2017 — 4/7/2017
:mentalKLINIK Solo Exhibition, 1 June – 4 July 2017, Porto Cervo

On Thursday 1st June, Louise Alexander Gallery will open the summer season at it’s Porto Cervo gallery space with a solo exhibition with Turkish artist duo :mentalKLINIK entitled ‘Self-Seeking Superficials’.

The works are created under illusion of being jovial and care-free, a closer look and the viewer will penetrate through the sugar coated surface to unveil a busy picture asking us to explore and question. :mentalKLINIK often flirt with marketing and entertainment mirroring commercial brands and the capitalist system. The artist duo often manipulate peoples anxieties and desires by using their work to call out conditions in the form of subliminal propaganda such as COMMUNICATED LIES, OVERRATED HEROES, MALFUNCTIONED CAPITALISM, OBSCURE REALITY and CURSED FAITH.
