> DESCRIPTION

 

White Columns is proud to present ‘Perfect Man II’ an exhibition curated by Rita Ackermann and Parinaz Mogadassi. In a statement accompanying the exhibition Ackermann and Mogadassi state:

“The focus of this exhibition is on those men who are on a quest, on the cold and sharpest blade of a knife, represented by their personal studies of construction and their struggle to defeat the elements that society's subculture dictates with its common sense of aesthetic mediocrity (designer art). They are ruled by the laws of self-seeing the subject of modern art only through the unique mind of the individual. The conquest can be destructive and useless but it leads to a complete knowledge of himself. Brutal fragility in order to be untouchable, free of references and without compromises but with the resolve of a hard fisted clarity.”
