“Never but Always”
March 13th – May 10th 2016
Meem Gallery presents a solo show of Berlin-based, Syrian-Danish artist Zhivago Duncan for our Spring 2016 exhibition, opening March 13th in the presence of the artist.
Zhivago Duncan is a multi-media artist who strives to challenge his artistic practice by testing his creative control. By diversifying his materials, he utilizes both traditional and non-traditional media, resulting in an oeuvre that includes large-scale site-specific installation, printmaking and photography, performance art, sculpture and painting.
In this new body of work, Duncan uses gold and linen, combining these materials with his technique of silkscreen to create a truly unique series of works. The combination of different materials itself is reflected in the subject matter, where Ottoman architectural designs sit next to a French design guillotine in one piece, and next to Spiderman in the next.
Being a multi-media artist gives Duncan the freedom to let his innate intellectual curiosity guide his relationship with the world around him. Zhivago Duncan has exhibited with Contemporary Fine Arts berlin, The Saatchi Gallery London, Frederick Snitzer Gallery Miami, The Barjeel Foundation Sharjah, Von der Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal, Germany. He has works in the Saatchi Collection and the Perez art museum Miami. In 2012 Duncan received the XLVIII Premio internazional Le Muse, Florence.
Vernissage: 6-10 pm March 13th 2016
Panel discussion: 5pm March 13th 2016, details TBA
