For the 13th edition of their Art-Up! series at Studio Béluga are thrilled to welcome Cal[le] verre2 terre by Öfio
Cal[le] verre2 terre is Öfio’s laboratory, where he experiments with and examines the themes that run through his artistic practice. His works are marked by a sincere forgetfulness that elicits both reflection and realization in equal parts. Half common experience and half embodied enthusiasm for the environment, Öfio’s works are inspired by nature, accepting it as an authoritative master that may lay down a challenge at any moment. He believes that understanding this renders him more human, more humble, and more aware. The works demand reconsideration of established associations, and acknowledge that we are in a constant state of transformation as we race towards authenticity, and as we negotiate with the imperishable synthetic.
Öfio’s multidisciplinary works are built on a foundation of engagement and technique. Conceptually, Öfio is an elusive myth that wanders freely between the exterior and the interior, the immaterial and the material, and the individual and the community. This alchemic game produces new recipes from possibilities and concepts that cannot be digested too quickly. Additionally, Öfio aims to create a subjective hommage to what things could have been, and to what they have become, to elucidate shadows and their unique aromas.
Exhibition: Tuesday June 27 to Thursday August 28th
