Nilbar Güres, Mutter Maria über dem Bügeltisch, 2019
Galerie Martin Janda is showing works by Nilbar Güreş & Július Koller in the SOLO/DUO section at ARCO Madrid 2020.
Both artists are dealing with concepts of identities, investigating them from psychological, social and political perspectives.
Seeing and being seen, concealing and revealing. Nilbar Güreş examines socio-political constructions of gender and cultural identities against the background of colonialism, and the manipulation of cultures by monotheistic religions. Diverging from a modern Western world view, structured by oppositions – culture/nature, mind/body, self/other – she engages with new possible forms of representation for female, queer and cultural identity.

Taking its title from the first verse of the poem Labyrinth by Jorge Luis Borges, this exhibition brings together installations, drawings, sculptures, paintings, videos and books by artists belonging to the international collection of contemporary art of Luiz Augusto Teixeira de Freitas.
In order to reflect the wide variety of meanings that an art collection can achieve, the exhibition is organized as a labyrinth: it has neither a beginning nor an end, no specific theme, it is not centered in any territory, time or belief. And, nevertheless, the options that are posed are endless: dialogues are established, encounters are generated, previous assumptions are deconstructed and innumerable possibilities unfold.
The group show includes works by: Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Svenja Deininger, Július Koller, Roman Ondak, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinović ⠀
Among the other selected artists are: Cildo Meireles, Dahn Vo, Damian Ortega, Gordon [...]
