Project ArtBeat and TBC Status are pleased to present the sculpture group exhibition “Body Experience… is the Center of Creation” – Barbara Hepworth

The exhibition is featuring works by international artists from different generations. It attempts to reflect on the diversity of their artistic practices, whilst at the same time highlighting their common gesture to use sculpture as a tool to lead the conversation about the specific potential of sculpture as a means to change the way we view our surroundings.

This exhibition avoids limiting its focus to any single contemporary art movement, but rather chooses to incorporate over ten individualistic artworks in a diverse range of used materials addressing sociopolitical, identity, gender, and class issues. The show is highlighting the artists’ role in using three-dimensional works in order to interpret and comprehend world around us.


Look me in the mirror
Look me in the eyes

Notorious for smog and smuggling
Smuggled smog from one pole to the other

From one world to the no world

From Freudian misunderstandings
To the orthodox truth

Plastic strawberries tasted like pain sang by Forough Farrokhzad

Death seemed just right while listening..

To the polyphonic wickedness of the members of the parliament
To the choral baby cry like sounds during the dolphin slaughter in Denmark

We will rise! Shall we?!
Rise like Mountains of unrecyclable condoms
Rise like hell

independently depended
undecidedly decided

Look me in the mirror
Look me in the eyes

I’ll reflect
The common sense that you lack
The injustice of your juicy judgments
The inadequacy of your adequacy

The empty
The good the bad and the broken
The broken and the broken

From Bronx to Manhattan and back
From World War to World Love and back
From you to you and no return

Look me in the mirror
Don’t look at me again
