click here for a brief overview of the work-
During FIAC art fair in Paris, two young South African artists
- Tim Dempers and Michael Elion - will put on a late-night exhibition
in the studio of Xavier Veilhan. The title
refers to both the work itself and how the artists feel at this
juncture in their lives. The work challenges our perceptions
with new modes of sensory expression.
Curated by Michael Elion, the show is supported by work from
Andre Niemeyer (Brazil), Sandra Pfeifer (Austria) and Kathrin
Kur (Germany). RAW is a supplementary art venue during FIAC.
"Each generation seems to arrive with the same aspirations to earn the support of one of the established galleries, even though they could probably make a greater impact by developing new gallery structures on their own. Even some of the most ambitious artists don’t realize that they are the ones with the power to change; they don’t need the permission of the art establishment."
