Doublethink Double vision and Erotic Nature exhibitions open at Pera Museum

Doublethink
Double vision
25 May - 06 August 2017 

Thinking has changed radically, but many people don't appear to have noticed. Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.

'You probably think of Doublethink as a negative concept. We in Russia think of it as just the beginning,' says Russian artist, Pavel Pepperstein. The exhibition starts with Moscow Conceptualists who were not acknowledged as artists by the state in 1970s and 80s, so had to form a new way of communication and showcases a new balance in thinking between text and image through the work of 34 artists from all around the world.

The exhibition title alludes to George Orwell’s seminal work 1984 and presents a selection that includes Tracey Emin, Marcel Dzama, Anselm Kiefer, Bruce Nauman, Raymond Pettibon, and Thomas Ruff, as well as Turkish artists, tracing the steps of pluralistic thought through works of art.

José Sancho

Erotic Nature
25 May - 06 August 2017 

Recognized as one of the leading sculptors of Costa Rica, José Sancho pursues a broad range of themes in his works, yet nature is always the most essential starting point. His unique conceptual style constitutes a fine example of a dialogue that can be established between what is local and global, particular and universal.

Curated by art historian and critic Mária Enriqueta Guardia Yglesias, the exhibition focuses on the artist’s animal and figure themes. Although he is inspired by artists such as Picasso and Brancusi, Sancho gravitates less towards the abstract; his depictions inspired by nature and the spaces in which they are installed carry out a constant dialogue.

Many of the artist’s works grow roots in their settings and thus seize the connection between the individual and the universal by being integrated into a timeless space recalling the cosmos. Also influenced by the Hispanic and pre-Colombian art of the land into which he was born and presenting this influence with new readings, Sancho masterfully uses different media: wood, granite, marble, bronze, iron plates, and found objects allow the artist to recreate the animal forms and the infinite representations of femininity.
