”I want to make art that looks better than reality – a moment of bliss that lasts forever.”
Jiri Geller’s retrospective solo exhibition FUCK THE WORLD! shows Geller’s classics along with a new series of works at the Gösta Serlachius Museum in October 2017.
During the recent years Geller’s focus has been on objects and situations characterized by a thing or an item that has become iconic. These are then varied in different colors, patterns and atmospheres.
In Geller’s world nothing is permanent; things change shape or surface. They drain, erupt, explode or break. The time of the image stops for a fraction of a second or covers both the past, present and future. We live on myths and beliefs created by ourselves. Do we dare to look at them and the interpretations that Jiri Geller is presenting?
The exhibition is open from October 28, 2017 – April 22, 2018 at Serlachius Museum Gösta, Mänttä.
