Can't Hear My Eyes

Cass MA alumnus curates new show in Barcelona and Madrid
Date: 9 April 2013

Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk, a recent alumnus of MA Curating the Contemporary at The Cass has curated Can't Hear My Eyes in Barcelona

Can’t Hear My Eyes shows a number of works with sculptural and painterly connotations, dimensions and properties: to evoke their seemingly static nature and surface in light of the work’s inherent – and consequently invisible and not directly sensible – dynamics, through the format of an exhibition, in two given spaces. It does so in order to test the potential of the work of art in the key of current tendencies within our information culture. The given fact that we have grown more and more accustomed to hard facts as based on transparent, ascertainable (‘checkable’) and ‘democratic’ sources of information and modes of communication; and the surge for clear–cut definitions to indicate the parts that surround us, has lead to, one could argue, an incongruity between works of art and the way we generally organise and conceive of our lives.

Can't Hear My Eyes is the result of the NoguerasBlanchard Curatorial Open Call 2013.

The exhibition will take place at NoguerasBlanchard, in their galleries in Barcelona and Madrid and forms part of the coinciding Jugada a 3 Bandas gallery festival.
