RIGHT SIDE (METAPHYSICS) - 2020

PRESS TO DOWNLOAD "DOUBLE ACCOUNTING" EXHIBITION HANDOUT

The prints on the right side of the exhibition space are organized around a system of colour that is based on (dialectical) materialism.



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



Hence to foreground light blue ("ideal") with red ("not reality") leads to "cynicism," as in the absence of ideals.



While to foreground red ("not reality") with light blue ("ideal") leads to "dematerialization," as the ideal state of non-becoming. The one being the inversion of the other according to the organizational principle of the system.



Pink stands for "virtuality" and light green stands for "cognition." So when pink ("virtuality") is placed at the foreground of light green ("cognition") it lead to "program." As in virtual cognition.





The exhibition is supported by Starfslaunasjóður listamanna and Myndlistarsjóður.
