Open Call Group Art Exhibition: ‘Identity’ at Exhibit 8

Our first OPEN CALL for a Group Art Exhibition is now happening.

‘Identity’

An identity is created and differentiated. Identity exists both in the microcosm and the macrocosm such as the universe, nature, cells, objects, people and even in everyday life.

We are going through an era where ‘self-profiles’ are a usual phenomenon. This phenomenon is observed in various forms and places, including social media, personal choices of clothing and hobbies, possessions, as well as an individual’s way of expression and thinking. An object is structurally created with certain materials to be functional in everyday life, thus serving its users. Thus, objects have their own established identity and qualities.

The identity of humans can be explored through their own reflections, actions and reactions through daily public and private interferences. People’s identity could be a combination of their social, cultural and educational background and how that is continuously evolving. The identity of an artist has no exception, and similarly to the rest of the world, it is constantly changing through time. The concept of ‘identity’ is so broad and yet so specific and sensitive for each one of us. The artists, through their five senses, could observe and present an unusual perspective of an everyday situation, object or feeling and thus developing their own unique characteristics.
