Everywhere was nowhere, and nowhere everywhere

Pi Artworks' upcoming exhibition 'Everywhere was nowhere, nowhere everywhere' curated by Mustafa Hulusi, focuses on the themes of magical thinking and the human need to connect with the sense of the cosmic.

Eighteen multi-generational and multi-national artist are brought together to explore the sensory experience outside of language to defy the narrowing horizon of thought in the face of ever looming idea of functionality of techno-science prevailing over imagination.

Following the Italian philosopher Federico Campagna’s ideas of ‘Technic’ and ‘Magic’, the exhibition offers to create a dialogue between two opposing yet not utterly incompatible polars, constituting and shaping the definition of what we call reality while guiding the visitors into intangible realms of being.

Monir Farmanfarmaian, GaiaFugazza, DeeFerris, DeborahHobson, XimenaGarrido-Lecca, MaudeMaris, TanoaSasraku, GulaySemercioglu, MaryamEisler, SalvatoreArancio, JohnGreenwood, GTPellizi, PeterPeri, PolysPeslikas, JamieShovlin, BenSpiers, Richard Wathen, James Huggett are participating in this exhibition to lift the veils of magical thinking and creativity.

Exhibition’s curator Mustafa Hulusi states this show as an invitation to the viewer as a playful rewriting of visual codes, from mystical hard-edged abstraction to trippy figuration, or from innovative assemblage to compellingly beautiful affective hand-crafted works. It is possible that the ineffable can illuminate - that liberation, and elation can be found by attuning to our cosmic origins and recalibrating our focus to our ultimate celestial destination.

This preternatural encounter brings the distinctive approach of each artist to light, in our search for a way to liberate our stream of consciousness from the tightening net of functionalism. Magical thinking is believed to deliver a creative way for us to navigate through our intertwined cosmic and anthropic journey.
