DESCRIPTION

AKINCI will open the season with Counterpoint, an exhibtion in which the transformation of fact, alternative histories, and subjectivity are apparent themes. Roger Cremers (NL) steps up as the curator of his own show, presenting carefully selected work by befriended artists Mark Aerial Waller (UK) and Runa Islam (BD/UK) next to his new series of paintings. Though very different in approach, the artists share a deep interest in challenging the course of chronology through visual language, historic research, and scientific fact, which all three of them use as the main material for their work. In effect, the conjunction of their voices hit a striking conceptual counterpoint.
