The Art World of the 1960-70’s experienced a healthy transformation in perception with the emergence of Performance and Land Art. These new modes of artistic expression challenged the traditional white cube scenario of what art is and how it should be exhibited. Using our natural environment as its own stage for creative interpretations in whatever form, helped in laying the foundations in how art is perceived in this century.
Searching for the Shapes Within
is a group exhibition presented by Persons Projects, that focuses on
the earth as a common base for these different artistic interventions.
What we see, breathe and stand on is part of the natural world we build
our state of being from. Yet in reality it’s a combination of numerous
elements and shapes all converging together to form an environment
that’s in constant flux. What all these artists share in common is a
mutual sense for experimentation that creates new frames for thought.
Their works form a 50-year timeline, beginning in the early 1970’s up
until the present, that engages in a joined dialogue that spans from
California, Iceland, Finland, Poland to Israel
