WTF Gallery is pleased to announce an installation of multi-media art exhibition by Jorge Carlos Smith. The exhibition is comprised of works, incubated in the recent past but distilled in 2013.
“The unclear. The blurred. The misinterpreted. Clashing culture. The wrong. Lost in Translation, and lost in Time. Meanings, the intentional or accidental, reality and fantasy is explored through a series of work in multiple media representing different interpretations, perceptions, and significance of everyday phenomena. It explores also the clarity of the thoughts and ideas, perhaps once held firm, even for a brief second, actual, derived, perceived, fantasized, and poses questions on what was and is still real, correct, through the passage of time and the fading of memory.”
The exhibition attempts to create a relationship with the audience that bridges reality and imagination, triggering ideas, thoughts and emotions, allowing the viewer to interpret the notions presented in situ as well as prompt reflections on their own past, faded memories or lost feelings.
