Searching for the Shapes Within is a group exhibition presents works by Grey Crawford, KwieKulik, Teresa Murak, Riitta Päiväläinen, Finnbogi Pétursson, Ragna Róbertsdóttir, Anna Rún Tryggvadóttir and Ryszard Wasko at Persons Projects.
The Art World of the 1960-70’s experienced a healthy transformation in perception with the emergence of Performance and Land Art. These new modes of artistic expression challenged the traditional white cube scenario of what art is and how it should be exhibited.
What we see, breathe and stand on is part of the natural world we build our state of being from. Yet in reality it’s a combination of numerous elements and shapes all converging together to form an environment that’s in constant flux. What all these artists share in common is a mutual sense for experimentation that creates new frames for thought. Their works form a 50-year timeline, beginning in the early 1970’s up until the present, that engages in a joined dialogue that spans from California, Iceland, Finland, Poland to Israel.
