RIGHT SIDE (METAPHYSICS) - 2020

PRESS TO DOWNLOAD "DOUBLE ACCOUNTING" EXHIBITION HANDOUT

The title of the exhibition - "Double Accounting" - refers to two systems by which to organize the totality of the world along two paths.




The prints on the left side of the exhibition space are organized according to a system of colour built on (dialectical) materialism. Each of the two systems is built on the procedure of allotting meaning to each of the prime colours as well as black and white and calculating the way that each combination of hues form new concepts built on logical deduction.



In the system of metaphysics, red stands for “not reality” and light blue for “ideal.”



Whereas pink stands for "virtuality" because that is the immaterial version of "not reality" and green stands for "cognition" because that is the immaterial version of "knowledge."
