- Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten fr om the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?
The boundary between a happy life in Eden and exile. There is still time, but not enough. Adam and Eve are still in the Garden of Eden, but nudity is already something shameful, and the idea of misbehaving was born in the minds of the first people.
At the collective exhibition “Who Told You That You Were Naked?” BIS ART GALLERY will present works by its resident artists who draw a parallel between Biblical narrative and modern life, wh ere temptations and self-destruction haunt people in their everyday life.
In their works, artists feel and convey the fatigue of nature or destruction of the matrix of the universe, to which our mistakes have led. Some of the artists (Mamuka Didebashvili, Teona Yamanidze, Romanoz, Sofa SFKNG, Oksana Afanasyeva) remind us of eternal vices: greed, adultery and vanity. Others (SURAZITSA, Vangranda, Elizaveta Suprun) tell us about modern mistakes of mankind: indifference to nature, hyperconsumption, loss of morality and guidelines in life.
All works are aimed at the internal reaction of the viewer, provoking further actions. Today, according to the curators, humanity is at a turning point, when it is necessary to realize our mistakes and choose the best path.
The main questions that the curators want to ask the viewer: can we prevent the most bloody and destructive wars in history? Will we stop the ecological crisis and space pollution? Will we pass on moral ideals and a habitable planet to our descendants?
Curators: Lada Elkina and Maria Grafutko
