Crumbling Down, Up And Up We Climb

YARAT Contemporary Art Centre

15 Dec 201718 Feb 2018

Curated by Suad Garayeva-Maleki and Björn Geldhof, the group show “Crumbling Down, Up And Up We Climb” acts as a verse on humanity faced with its own limitations, like a candle burning at both ends. By juxtaposing five artistic positions as different proposals for a way forward, the show explores attitudes towards cultural histories and monumentality as well as the constant human condition of entropy and re-awakening. The works by Reza Aramesh, Vajiko Chachkhiani, Jan Fabre, Goshka Macuga and Stephen G. Rhodes present the ambivalent human condition in which the will to move forward is constantly challenged by loss and forgetfulness.
