SOLOS - NEVER ODD OR EVEN PART III
de 23 Ago a 20 Set 2014
[palindrome] is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction.
Many believe that symmetrical objects have an inner harmony, and value them for this. In nature, symmetry is approximate. For example, plant leaves, while considered symmetric, rarely match up exactly when folded in half. If there is no such thing as perfect symmetry in nature, can we find perfection in imperfections? What happens when two artists decide to mirror their own work but also reflect and bounce off each other's visual language? Tanel Veenre and Märta Mattsson have been working on a set of exhibitions based on palindromes during 2014. In the exhibition, Solos - Never Odd or Even, Part III at Platina they have developed two new series of work, Heartology and Phantoms. Their new pieces has been created under an echo of two minds exploring the contradictory meanings of symmetry in nature and life.
