DESCRIPTION

Galerie vriend van Bavink & 2x2projects present:

The artists in the exhibition "Beauty of an Ugly Truth" present works that only on closer inspection reveal the fact that these are based on an unpleasant reality. Each artist with its own technique and style address heavy themes, such as death, illness, war or violence. Yet their works contain an aesthetic beauty.

At the invitation of Vriend van Bavink, 2x2rojects suggested an exhibition with this theme at its core, displaying the beauty of something sad or something unpleasant in many ways, hence confronting the viewer with a question: "Do I only want to see the work as an artwork or do I want to understand it's origin?"

The five young artists from Berlin, Antwerp and Amsterdam, give their work a personal interpretation and invite you to the opening reception.
