Without light, no shadow…

From 6 of October, all those curious people who want to perceive for some hours a darker and more critical vision of reality, with second interpretations of a present time with a post-punk and gothic aesthetics, have the chance to visit the exhibition Urban Gothic, by the Dutch artist Marc Bijl (1970), who lives in Berlin. Raw building materials to remind us of the space we are living in, a dim fountain in the middle of a sinister garden of darkness, a sea of loudspeakers emitting undecipherable sounds, a noise without words, famous statues covered by gooey black epoxy… For the first time, the Dutch artist gathers together all his work of over 10 years to show a convoluted interpretation of the mass culture, of a system of powers controlled by the image, the advertising and the money. Bold and direct, Marc Bijl, who plays in a gothic music band as well, shows us his vision in this way. The exhibition is held in the Groninger Museum till the 1st of April of 2013.
