Salon of Photography: /fʌs/

Although we do not break the walls, here we have brought forth a new aesthetic storm. We are constantly hungry for new experiments.

This is not a meeting of individuality. The gallery walls aren’t a part of the pictures’ narration. The title “/fʌs/“ sounds grotesquely dirty each time we utter it- we have so much to say through our art that we tread on our work; we step on our own toes. Rebellion? Or is it just a tangible trace of our presence; a bit of proof that we have been here? We purposely destroy sometimes to create art, and reveal the memories of objects or feelings that may have been long dead, or just not thought of. Our exhibit is devoid of illusions. The space in which we hold it yields a disintegrating and aging feel emanating from our projects. From a regular gallery space such as this, we welded and tamed it to make it an interior just as imperfect and impure as we and our works are. Perfection was never the goal here. It is now a place for a person of many faces; an unrefined human. Here, we are not flawless. With these pictures, we create a new context. Although we do not break the walls, here we have brought forth a new aesthetic storm. We are constantly hungry for new experiments. We provoke our sense by opening up a path of dialogue between this interior space and the viewers of it, who despite their own will, will create their own form of chaos; may it be only in their heads. We pass each other, we collide and smash, and our unified confusion is an excuse to express this through art. Words aren’t quite necessary anymore.
