Hold Me Close to Your Heart. The exhibition presents more than 20 sculpture, installation, drawing and video works
The exhibition "Hold Me Close to Your Heart" proposes an experience, a journey to another world: one that is simultaneously unfamiliar and strangely similar to ours. Piccinini conceived each exhibition floor to have a distinct atmosphere. Brightly illuminated, the ground floor comments on the shiny world of commodities and the nature of everyday life in a post-industrial urban environment. The first floor is inhabited by invented hybrid creatures. They explore further the contemporary construct of 'nature', our place in it, and our attempts to control it. Finally, the most intimate part of the journey, invites the viewer into a homely setting on the second floor, where most of the residents are asleep. It is a meditation on what means to be human today and what our responsibilities might be towards the life we create. Curated by Basak Doga Temur, the exhibition presents more than 20 sculpture, installation, drawing and video works. Admission free.
